Massimo De Carlo

Italian gallerist with spaces in Milan, London and Hong Kong

In 2019 De Carlo will move one of his two Milan spaces to Casa Corbellini- Wassermann, an icon of 1930s Milanese architecture designed by Piero Portaluppi. For now however the gallerist continues to show an eclectic mix of international artists across his four spaces – the others being in London and Hong Kong. This year saw the first London gallery show of work by Chicago-based painter McArthur Binion (also featured in Cristine Macel’s Venice Biennale), while in Italy there were displays by Swiss artist John Armleder (who also showed in London) and new signing Jamian Juliano-Villani. In Hong Kong there were shows by Lee Kit, Ai Weiwei and Roland Flexner, Zero legend Enrico Castellani and Gianfranco Baruchello (with Marcel Duchamp). Outside the galleries Baruchello had a critically acclaimed show at Raven Row, London, Elmgreen & Dragset took the reins at the Istanbul Biennial and once-retired Maurizio Cattelan continued on the comeback trail.
