Since opening its doors in 2012 on Mayfair’s historic Dering Street, Ronchini has brought new perspectives to the London contemporary art market by featuring young emerging artists, established artists who have not been exhibited in the UK, as well as artists whose achievements have yet to be fully acknowledged within the shifting geography of art history. Founded by Lorenzo Ronchini, the gallery evolved from years of private collecting with a focus on Minimalism, Spatialism, Conceptualism and Arte Povera – that continue to inform the gallery’s aesthetic today.
Ronchini prides itself on curating every exhibition with a scholarly approach, which engages contextual and subjective issues that have not been previously addressed. It has hosted the first London exhibitions of Conrad Marca-Relli, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Franco Angelii, Will Cotton, Jacob Hashimoto, Katsumi Nakai, Berndnaut Smilde, Paolo Scheggi, Rebecca Ward, and Jens Wolf, amongst many others.
It has now established itself as a forerunner amongst top London galleries and has presented at international art fairs including: Frieze London and New York, The Armory Show, Art Brussels, Dallas Art Fair, Art Dubai, EXPO Chicago, Untitled Miami, Zona Maco (Mexico City), and MiArt (Milan), amongst others, making Ronchini for many years one of the top 20 galleries internationally for fair attendance.
In addition to the exhibition and fair program, Ronchini publishes artist monographs and exhibition catalogues featuring essays by some of the most lauded voices in the art world, engaging and contextualising the artists that they represent within the wider market.
Ronchini also collaborates with museums, foundations, and curators from around the world to develop greater understanding and broader interest in the work of its artists. The gallery offers a focused environment in which its artists can be viewed in a rigorous context.
