Harry Blain and Graham Southern open London gallery

Harry Blain and Graham Southern open their new London gallery on October 13 with an exhibition by the British artist Mat Collishaw.

Called Blain|Southern, the gallery is located on Dering Street, Mayfair. Blain and Southern will open a larger space, also in Mayfair, in 2011 and have plans for further galleries in Berlin and New York.

Until June, Blain and Southern ran Haunch of Venison, the gallery they founded in 2002 and sold to Christie’s plc in 2007. The parting was amicable, with Blain and Southern continuing to work for the company until August 31, 2010.

Seven senior Haunch of Venison staff and other members of Blain and Southern’s team have joined them in the new venture.

Said Blain: “Technically Blain|Southern is a newly minted enterprise, but in reality it’s very much a continuation; we will be working with the collectors, museums and artists that we’ve built close relationships with over the last twenty years."

“The only major difference is that, being independent, we are now looking forward to applying to all the major art fairs, which will expose the artists we work with to an even wider audience.”

The new gallery will focus on its primary programme, working with a number of artists including Mat Collishaw, Anton Henning, Rachel Howard, Bill Viola and Jeroen Verhoeven. Others will be announced in the coming months.

Blain and Southern staged many acclaimed shows at Haunch of Venison, amongst them a landmark survey of Abstract Expressionism in New York and an exhibition with Damien Hirst and Michael Joo in Berlin.
