Richard Saltoun Gallery - Press Release

Textile Pioneers 
Richard Saltoun Gallery presents a group stand of some of the most renowned Post-war female textile artists: Magdalena Abakanowicz (Poland 1930-2017, Olga de Amaral (Colombia, 1932), Jagoda Buić (Croatia, 1930-2022), Ewa Pachucka (Poland, 1936-2020) and Barbara Levittoux-Świderska (Poland, 1933-2019). Each of the featured artists is widely recognised for their contributions to elevating the tapestry tradition from a specifically feminine, decorative, and low art form to a fine art context in the Post-war period. Notably, Abakanowicz, Buić, Pachucka and de Amaral were all included in MoMA’s pivotal 1969 exhibition Wall Hangings, the first museum exhibition to contextualise textile works within the realm of visual art.

Founded in 2012, Richard Saltoun Gallery is based in the heart of Mayfair, on Dover street in London, and on the historic cultural street of Via Margutta, Rome. The gallery specialises in Modern and Post-War art. It is guided by a strong focus on rediscovering the work of important yet under-recognised female artists through presentations at both its locations, online exhibitions, events and participation in art fairs around the world. Since its inception, Richard Saltoun Gallery has been driven by an interest in serving a wider purpose and is now recognised for its critically and socially engaged programme. In 2019, the gallery launched a year-long initiative titled 100% Women that aimed to address gender inequality in the art world. In 2021, it dedicated all exhibitions to the writings of political philosopher Hannah Arendt in a 12-month programme to confront some of the most complex socio-political issues of our time. The gallery is considered a leader in its representation of female avant-garde pioneers of the 1960s and ‘70s, such as Eleanor Antin, Annegret Soltau and Renate Bertlmann. It also preserves the legacy of artists through estate representation, including Helen Chadwick, Franca Maranò, Jo Spence, Barbara Levittoux-Świderska and Shelagh Wakely, amongst others. The gallery acts as a consultant to major museums and public institutions and advises private and corporate collections. It actively documents the work of its artists through the production of publications and frequently stages talks, screenings and performances.
