Marlborough Chelsea Rebrands and Merges New York and London Programming

Marlborough Chelsea has announced that it is rebranding itself as Marlborough Contemporary and will coordinate programming between its New York and London spaces under the leadership of directors Max Levai and Pascal Spengemann.

“We are now an internationally aligned program, and Marlborough Contemporary represents the future of this legendary gallery,” Levai said. “This expansion opens up an exciting opportunity for connecting with new artists and expanding our audience.”

The gallery will also add to its staff by welcoming director Nichole Caruso, formerly of Wallspace Gallery and Lisa Cooley Gallery, as well as Leo Fitzpatrick, who will continue to oversee the adjacent Viewing Room gallery. Ed Spurr, formerly of Matthew Marks Gallery, will also join Marlborough Contemporary as a director in London.

Marlborough Contemporary London was formerly under the directorship of Andrew Renton. The first season of London programming will feature a diverse group of primarily American artists, all of whom will be making their first solo exhibitions in the UK, and will launch on April 27 with an exhibition of new work by Sarah Braman.

Founded in London in 1946, Marlborough Gallery has an international presence with major gallery spaces and offices in Madrid and Barcelona in addition to its established venues in New York and London.
