Galerie 10 St.Moritz, Dezember 23rd 2020 – March 2021.
Text by Gallery JD MALAT: „JD Malat Gallery is proud to present its new pop-up space in the world’s most unique Alpine Metropolis, St Moritz. From the 23rd of December 2020 to 31st of March 2021, JD Malat Gallery will bring the work of its emerging and established international artists together in an effort to highlight the dynamic cross-cultural exchange between the gallery’s diverse programme and St Moritz.
St Moritz has been a creative centre for many visionaries over the years. From the Giacometti family and the Alpine painter Giovanni Segantini, to intellectuals such as the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and the writer Thomas Mann, St Moritz has since been widely recognised as a popular space where diverse traditions and cultures meet and interact.
As a cultural hub that embraces diversity and welcomes creativity, the St Moritz pop-up space reflects the JD Malat Gallery goal to inspire and engage a diverse audience in the world of art.
For the first time, St Moritz will see the work of leading artists, such as the Colombian abstract expressionist Santiago Parra, the Ghanaian figurative painter Kojo Marfo, as well as American abstract painter Andy Moses and Turkish sculptor Hande Sekerciler.
The pop-up space will also present the work of artists who are already in prominent Swiss collections. The widely known Swiss painter of mountains, Conrad Jon Godly, the Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks and the leading Post-War West Coast abstract painter Ed Moses will be shown collectively. Also returning to Switzerland is the work of leading figurative painters Li Tianbing, Jean-Pierre Cassigneul and Henrik Uldalen.
By bringing each artist’s creative perspective to St Moritz, JD Malat Gallery hopes to strengthen the dialogue between international artists and make evident the connective and encompassing force of art.
JD Malat Gallery specialises in contemporary art and champions a broad spectrum of emerging and international contemporary artists. The programme consists of an array of exciting artists supported by year-round exhibitions and contemporary art fairs. JD Malat Gallery x St. Moritz celebrates the diverse and innovative programme that JD Malat Gallery has to offer.“
