After a decade at Christie’s in London and a decade at Galería Elvira González in Madrid, Fernando Mignoni will open a new gallery on New York’s Upper East Side. Mignoni Gallery, which occupies a space on the second floor of 960 Madison Avenue, opens October 31 with a show of work by Donald Judd. The space was previously occupied by the gallery Waterhouse & Dodd, which has spaces in New York and London.
The gallery will also operate an art advisory service out of the space, taking on both private clients and institutions.
The plan is to have two or three shows a year. First up is “Donald Judd: Progressions,” which features six horizontally mounted steel works made between 1969 and 1988.
Mignoni left Christie’s—where he was head and director of the postwar and contemporary department in the King Street salesroom in London—to join the family business, becoming the director of secondary market sales at the gallery owned by his mother, Elvira Gonzáles.
