Livingstone gallery was established in 1991 and focuses on contemporary painting, drawing and sculpture of international significance. Important exhibitions included James Brown, Jannis Kounellis, Sol LeWitt, Arnulf Rainer and the last exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg.
An important priority is the discovery and advancement of young artists such as Daniele Galliano (I), Ryan Mendoza (USA/I/D), Raquel Maulwurf (E/NL), Birgit Verwer (NL), Roger Wardin (D) and Jan Wattjes (NL). In order to further this development Livingstone gallery opened a second space at Anna Paulownastraat 70-A in 2005, dedicated to the presentation of young and yet unseen positions.
In 2007 Livingstone changed the first floor at Anna Paulownastraat 70-B into a project room, enabling to veer off from the regular gallery program and jump into unexpected last minute opportunities, like Daniele Galliano’s exhibition ‘Venice’, coinciding with his participation in the Italian Pavilion at the Venice Biennial or Arnulf Rainer’s last series of etchings ‘The Last Cross’.
The gallery always works closely together with its artists for exhibitions and has published a large number of books, catalogs and special editions. Furthermore, the gallery has arranged many museum exhibitions for its artists, including the upcoming solo exhibtion of Ryan Mendoza at Gemeentemuseum The Hague.
Over the years the gallery was represented at many international art fairs, including Art Basel, Arco Madrid, Art Frankfurt, Art Brussels, Art Cologne and recently at PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in New York.
In the Netherlands the gallery has long since been present at the Art Rotterdam and the Art Amsterdam. This year the gallery has been awarded by the Art Amsterdam with the No Holds Barred project stand for an installation called Great Lie or Waste of Time by Birgit Verwer.
With twenty years of experience Livingstone gallery continues to confront the new with the established, searching continuity and the experiment.
