JD Malat Gallery is proud to present its new pop-up space in the world’s most unique
Alpine Metropolis, St Moritz. This Winter, JD Malat Gallery will bring the work of its
emerging and established international artists together in an effort to highlight the
dynamic cross-cultural exchange between the gallery’s diverse programme and St
St Moritz has been a creative centre for many visionaries over the years. From the
Giacometti family and the Alpine painter Giovanni Segantini, to intellectuals such as the
philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and the writer Thomas Mann, St Moritz has since been
widely recognised as a popular space where diverse traditions and cultures meet and
As a cultural hub that embraces diversity and welcomes creativity, the St Moritz pop-up
space reflects the JD Malat Gallery goal to inspire and engage a diverse audience in the
world of art.
‘Viewing our artists in a new context presents an exciting way of thinking about their art. While
we hold solo exhibitions here in Mayfair, London, our pop-up in St Moritz will be a space dedicated
to group exhibitions. Presenting our artists’ work collectively and in a new space will allow a new

and creative international audience to appreciate art from across the globe.’ – Jean-David Malat,
For the first time, St Moritz will see the work of leading artists, such as the Colombian
abstract expressionist Santiago Parra, the Ghanaian figurative painter Kojo Marfo, as well
as American abstract painter Andy Moses and Turkish sculptor Hande Sekerciler.
The pop-up space will also present the work of artists who are already in prominent Swiss
collections. The widely known Swiss painter of mountains, Conrad Jon Godly, the
Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks and the leading Post-War West Coast abstract painter Ed
Moses will be shown collectively. Also returning to Switzerland is the work of leading
figurative painters Jean-Pierre Cassigneul and Henrik Uldalen, as well as the work of
conceptual light and text artist Robert Montgomery.
By bringing each artist’s creative perspective to St Moritz, JD Malat Gallery hopes to
strengthen the dialogue between international artists and make evident the connective
and encompassing force of art.
JD Malat Gallery specialises in contemporary art and champions a broad spectrum of
emerging and international contemporary artists. The programme consists of an array of
exciting artists supported by year-round exhibitions and contemporary art fairs. JD Malat
Gallery x St. Moritz celebrates the diverse and innovative programme that JD Malat
