Pilar Corrias Gallery
Since its inception, Pilar Corrias Gallery has championed the work of both established and emerging international contemporary artists. It is one of only a handful of contemporary art galleries worldwide that represents more female artists than male artists.
Corrias opened the gallery, a 3,800 square foot space occupying a two-storey building on Eastcastle Street in Fitzrovia, London, in 2008. The inaugural exhibition featured a single work by Philippe Parreno: a solitary cast-aluminium Christmas tree titled “Fraught Times: For Eleven Months of the Year It’s an Artwork and in December It’s Christmas (October), 2008.” The show was included in Artforum’s best exhibitions of 2008.
A number of the artists discovered by Corrias had their first UK solo show at the gallery, including Ian Cheng, Helen Johnson, Tala Madani, Mary Reid Kelley, Christina Quarles, Rachel Rose, and Tschabalala Self, all of whom have subsequently achieved international acclaim.
