Victoria Miro represents 40 established and emerging artists. One of the largest commercial spaces in London, the gallery occupies 19,000 square feet across three sites in Mayfair and Wharf Road, N1.
Victoria Miro first opened her gallery in Cork Street, Mayfair in 1985. The gallery quickly earned acclaim for showing the work of established and emerging artists from around the world.
In 2000 Victoria Miro relocated to a sensitively converted, 8,000-square-foot former furniture factory situated between Hoxton and Islington in north east London.
In October 2013, Victoria Miro returned to Mayfair. The gallery occupies the ground floor of a prominent corner site intersected by St George and Maddox Streets, directly behind Sotheby’s in Bond Street.
Victoria Miro Venice opened in May 2017.
The gallery ethos remains consistent: to promote great and innovative artists and to nurture the best talent from the new generation of artists around the world.
