Artnet News: 7 Questions for Gallerist Jean-David Malat on How He Cultivates the Careers of Emerging Artists and When the Risks Are Worth It

Date: 8 February 2023


Originally from Paris, Jean-David Malat established his eponymous gallery in London five years ago with the aim of fostering young and emerging artists—and has since developed a notably dynamic roster and thought-provoking program. A perennial supporter of the arts and artists, over the course of his nearly two-decade career, Malat has collaborated with a multitude of museums and foundations, through which he has helped advance the careers of several now internationally recognized artists such as Conrad Jon Godly and Henrik Uldalen.
