About the Gallery

Victoria Miro represents 40 established and emerging artists. One of the largest commercial spaces in London, the gallery occupies 19,000 square feet across three sites in Mayfair and Wharf Road, N1. 

 

Victoria Miro first opened her gallery in Cork Street, Mayfair in 1985. The gallery quickly earned acclaim for showing the work of established and emerging artists from around the world.

 In 2000 Victoria Miro relocated to a sensitively converted, 8,000-square-foot former furniture factory situated between Hoxton and Islington in north east London. 

In October 2006 the gallery expanded further by opening a second exhibition and viewing space in an adjoining building on Wharf Road.

The new space, conceived by Claudio Silvestrin Architects and executed by the project architects Michael Drain Architects, comprises galleries and viewing rooms. It sits atop a refurbished Victorian building, its sculptural, minimalist form creating a dramatic approach to the building from the street. Illuminating the south façade through its six-metre-high windows is Ian Hamilton Finlay's elegiac neon installation, The Seas Leaves the Strawberries Waves (1990). Works specially conceived for the space include Grayson Perry's fifteen-metre-long The Walthamstow Tapestry, 2009 (pictured).

The gallery is almost unique in London for having its own garden, a beautiful landscaped area overlooking a restored stretch of the Regent's Canal at Wenlock Basin which has been used to great effect for installations by gallery artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Alex Hartley (A Gentle Collapsing II, 2016, pictured).

In October 2013, Victoria Miro returned to Mayfair. The gallery occupies the ground floor of a prominent corner site intersected by St George and Maddox Streets, directly behind Sotheby's in Bond Street. 

 

As in Wharf Road, the design was conceived by Claudio Silvestrin and executed by Michael Drain.

Victoria Miro Venice opened in May 2017

Victoria Miro’s new gallery opened to the public on 10 May 2017 with an inaugural exhibition, Poolside Magic, by Chris Ofili.  The intimate gallery space is housed in a seventeenth-century building, in the former Galleria Il Capricorno. This quintessentially Venetian canalside location is in the heart of the San Marco district. Victoria Miro Venice will feature a year-round programme of exhibitions and will provide further opportunities for artists to stage exhibitions and special projects in an intimate environment in the heart of Venice, a city so beloved by artists.

The gallery ethos remains consistent: to promote great and innovative artists and to nurture the best talent from the new generation of artists around the world.
