Christie’s former London Contemporary art specialist, Pilar Ordovas, will re-emerge on Savile Row in October. Until then, the Evening Standard tries to fan some flames around her:
From the auction house she went on to manage Larry Gagosian’s gallery in London. But after two years, much to the bemusement of the international art magnate, Ordovas, 38, quit.
Fast-forward to last month and the experienced researcher and curator announced that she was going solo, raising huge expectations, with her own gallery, Ordovas. “I know where the art is,” she says meaningfully. […]
The Ordovas gallery is her baby, although she is hoping her English husband, Nicholas, who works in the City, will help her with the financial side. She chose Savile Row over the industry’s traditional home of Cork Street. “There has been a drive to move out of the West End. [But] you need to make things more accessible and more convenient,” says Ordovas, who lives in Battersea.
“Savile Row with Sadie Coles’s HQ, New Burlington and Hauser & Wirth, is becoming the centre of the arts.”
