Ralph Pucci Debuts First International Outpost with London Pop-Up
The venerable gallery is exhibiting work by Vladimir Kagan, Claudia Alvarez, Lianne Gold, Stefan Bishop, and Eric Schmitt
Celebrated gallery Ralph Pucci is heading overseas for the first time in its 70-year history, opening a London pop-up for the next six weeks—and possibly even longer. “We have always wanted to have a gallery in London,” says Michael Pucci, the third generation of Ralph Pucci International. “Many of our clients and collectors are based overseas, and London is such a global hub.”
Coinciding with the London Design Festival and continuing though the city’s upcoming PAD and Frieze fairs, the 2,000-square-foot installation is now open on Albemarle Street, in the tony Mayfair neighborhood. “This is so different from our U.S. galleries, in their big industrial spaces,” says Ralph Pucci. “But it is great to edit and introduce ourselves in an intimate space that helps clients and collectors to know us better and discover our range of both timeless and innovative design.”
The two-level outpost features works by the gallery’s impressive roster of artists and designers, among them Eric Schmitt, Patrick Naggar, Lianne Gold, Stefan Bishop, Spencer Fung, John Wigmore, Kevin Walz, Paul Mathieu, Claudia Alvarez, and Vladimir Kagan. The current show will run though the end of October, and the gallery noted that it may even be extended through the end of the 2022. Pucci currently oversees permanent spaces in New York and Los Angeles, and is set to debut a new Miami location next year.
