JD Malat Gallery




Since its establishment in 2017, JD Malat Gallery’s mission has been to support established and emerging artists. Specialising in contemporary art, the gallery represents over 20 international artists from a diverse range of media, from sculpture and painting to video and photography. JD Malat Gallery aims to provide a significant international audience for its artists through its wide-ranging programme and participation in art fairs across the globe and also endeavours to broaden its dialogue with artists outside of the gallery’s core programme.

Jean-David Malat, born in Paris, France, is a London-based art dealer and curator. JD has worked privately with special clients and has been in the industry for more than eighteen years as an internationally recognised curator and art expert. He has been featured in and contributed to a number of publications including The Huffington Post and The Times. He also supports the Serpentine Gallery, and is a patron of the Tate and the Royal Academy of Art.

Over many years, JD has collaborated with numerous museums and foundations. Through a series of exhibitions and museum shows, JD has helped several artists including Santiago Parra, Conrad Jon Godly and Henrik Uldalen achieve international acclaim.

JD has discovered, promoted and established over a dozen formerly-unknown artists, and aims to use his years of expertise to bring even more artists to the world’s attention. The launch of the gallery in June 2018 caused much excitement worldwide and was internationally featured in the press including The Telegraph.

During the summer of 2020, JD expertly adapted in the face of the Coronavirus crisis and launched a group exhibition titled ‘Isolation Mastered’. This show gave aspiring artists of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to showcase and sell their artwork. The gallery received over 1,000 submissions and featured 25 artists in the exhibition, selecting artists who demonstrated innovative dialogue with the lockdown period. 8,000 public votes selected 5 top artists, with Andrew Litten and Kojo Marfo being added to the JD Malat Gallery artist roster. Not only did this exhibition provide a vital platform for new artists, but it also served to foster connection and strengthen the art community in a time of unprecedented distance.
