Sprüth Magers London to Reopen After Eighteen-Month Refurbishment

The German art dealers Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers will relaunch their London space, located on Grafton Street in Mayfair, at the end of September, Anny Shaw of the Art Newspaper reports.

A Gary Hume exhibition displayed across all three floors of the expanded gallery will inaugurate the refurbished space. Opening on September 29, the show is the artist’s first exhibition in the UK since his retrospective at Tate Britain in 2013.

Sprüth Magers had planned to relocate to a townhouse at 29 Sackville Street, near Hauser & Wirth and the Royal Academy of Arts, after it closed with a final exhibition of Sterling Ruby works in April 2016, but were then given the opportunity to lease the entire eighteenth-century building on Grafton Street. “This is the perfect scenario for us,” Magers told the Art Newspaper. “We can now remain where we have been for the past decade in London and the extra space will provide our artists with different opportunities to exhibit their work.”
