International contemporary art - young art in context
Livingstone gallery was established in 1991 and focuses on contemporary painting, drawing and sculpture of international significance. 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), Hugo Tieleman (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 part of the gallery 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. 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 VOLTA New York. In the Netherlands the gallery has been present at Art Fairs in Amsterdam and Rotterdam since the beginning.
Livingstone gallery is a member of the Dutch Gallery Association (NGA) and the Dutch Association for the Original Print (VOG). The gallery is a participant in the Kunstkoop program of the Mondriaan Fund.
With twenty years of experience Livingstone gallery continues to confront the new with the established, searching continuity and the experiment.
