50 Years / 50 Artists
Nov 8 – Dec 21, 2018

Nigel Hall, Spirit, 2017

We are delighted to announce an exhibition celebrating 50 years since the gallery’s establishment as Annely Juda Fine Art in 1968. The exhibition will feature works by a selection of 50 artists who are either represented by or who have shown at the gallery. The exhibition marks the rich history of the gallery, which has been a stalwart and influential space for artists and visitors since its opening by Annely Juda and her son David Juda in Tottenham Mews, central London.

 

Sheila Girling, Double Space, 2012

Annely Juda had already established the Molton Gallery (1960 – 1963) and then the Hamilton Galleries (1963 – 1967) in London before opening Annely Juda Fine Art with David Juda on June 16, 1968 with Now Open: Important Paintings of the 20th Century and Young Artists. This marrying of the twentieth-century avant-garde and contemporary art has carried on throughout the gallery’s history.

 

Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart, Composition No. 98, 1935

Max Bill, Untitled, 1970

The gallery became known for exhibiting works of Russian Constructivism, Bauhaus and De Stijl showing artists such as Kandinksy, Malevich, Mondrian, Tatlin, Gabo, Lissitzky and Rodchenko, something which was rare at the time in England. Adopting the title Moholy-Nagy gave to his 1927 Bauhaus book of Malevich texts and illustrations, the gallery presented the first of many exhibitions devoted to abstract art titled The Non-Objective World in 1970. As art historian and critic Norbert Lynton states, “with the Non-Objective World shows, Annely opened up, intensified and reshaped areas of modern art history little touched at that time by scholars, curators and collectors…”

 

Sarah Oppenheimer, S – 1013_2, 2011

Naum Gabo, Linear construction in Space No.1 c. 1950 / Gloria Friedmann, Pariah (tomatoes), 1996

The gallery has always shown and represented contemporary artists along with its historical program, partnering with the contemporary program of Rowan Gallery between 1982-1985. Strong relationships with Japan lead to the showing of Japanese artists of distinction such as Yoshishige Saito, Kazuo Shiraga, Katsuhiro Yamaguchi, Tadashi Kawamata and Yuko Shiraishi. Key British artists have always been central to the gallery’s program and long-standing represented artists include David Hockney, Leon Kossoff, Nigel Hall, David Nash, Alan Charlton, Alan Green and the Estates of Anthony Caro and Prunella Clough. International represented artists include Francois Morellet, Edda Renouf and Sarah Oppenheimer. A friendship stemming from the 1960’s between David Juda and Christo and Jeanne-Claude lead to the the artists’ first gallery exhibition in London in 1971.

 

Alexander Rodchenko, Non-objective composition, 1919 / Christo, Packed Supermarket Cart, 1963

David Nash, Tall Torso, 2015 / Liubov Popova, Non-Objective Composition c. 1920

Alexandra Exter, Stage Design for ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ 1921 / Catherine Lee, Copper Clad, 2008

In 1990, the gallery moved to its current location at 23 Dering Street off New Bond Street in London’s Mayfair and remains under the directorship of David Juda. It is obviously impossible to cover the breadth of the 342 exhibitions held at the gallery over its 50 years, however, this exhibition celebrates a slice of the gallery’s history by showing a selection of works by represented and exhibited artists.

A full list of artists in the exhibition is as follows: Roger Ackling, Max Bill, Anthony Caro, Alan Charlton, Eduardo Chillida, Christo, Prunella Clough, Alexandra Exter, Lesley Foxcroft, Gloria Friedmann, Katsura Funakoshi, Naum Gabo, Stefan Gec, Sheila Girling, Philipp Goldbach, Alan Green, June Green, Nigel Hall, Werner Haypeter, David Hockney, Sigrid Holmwood, Peter Kalkhof, Tadashi Kawamata, Gustav Klucis, Leon Kossoff, Edwina Leapman, Catherine Lee, Kasimir Malevich, Kenneth Martin, Mary Martin, John McLaughlin, Michael Michaeledes, László Moholy-Nagy, François Morellet, David Nash, Lucia Nogueira, Sarah Oppenheimer, Liubov Popova, Edda Renouf, Alan Reynolds, Alexander Rodchenko, Yoshishige Saito, Kazuo Shiraga, Yuko Shiraishi, Suzanne Treister, Lun Tuchnowski, Georges Vantongerloo, Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart, Graham Williams, Katsuhiro Yamaguchi.
