Skarstedt has announced the opening of a new London gallery at 8 Bennet Street, St James’s. A joint exhibition of Cindy Sherman’s History Portraits (1988 – 1990) and David Salle’s Tapestry Paintings (1989 – 1991) will be the first exhibition.

Designed by Thomas Croft Architects, the new gallery benefits from over 4,000 square feet of exhibition space in this historic quarter, enabling Skarstedt to continue its programme of historically-researched and museum-quality exhibitions. Coinciding with Frieze Masters, the exhibition of these important series will provide a renewed perspective in which to consider the significance of the artists’ earlier works and their influence on subsequent generations of painters and photographers.
