David Gill: Designing Art
David Gill and Meredith Etherington-Smith
David Gill reveals the famed gallerist’s opinions of and influence on the world of art and design. He presents the works of artists, sculptors, and designers he admires, champions, and nutures, among them Donald Judd, Mattia Bonetti, Zaha Hadid, Grayson Perry, Barnaby Barford, Frederickson Stallard, Jorge Pardo, and the Campana brothers. Structured chronologically and divided by location, the book includes never-before-seen photographs of Gill’s galleries, his award-winning exhibitions, and his own homes: a converted handbag factory south of the River Thames; the 18th- century Albany apartments in London’s Mayfair ; and a restored palazzo in Malta’s Valetta. Seen throughout are the designs of the many world-famous artists he has represented over his 25 years at the forefront of the contemporary art and design world. The book also features a selection of his curated interiors and never-before- published glimpses of the private collections and homes of the numerous internationally renowned collectors with whom Gill regularly collaborates.
