Dürst Britt & Mayhew
- Den Haag
- Take Off Booth D01
Dürst Britt & Mayhew was founded in The Hague (NL) in 2015 by curator Jaring Dürst Britt and art critic Alexander Mayhew. They chose The Hague as a homebase for the gallery, because of its flourishing climate for contemporary art and emerging artists.
Dürst Britt & Mayhew is committed to helping artists from different national and artistic backgrounds to further develop their practice. In the gallery we make five shows a year, allowing artists to use the rough space, which used to be a garage, as they see fit. At art fairs we prefer to bring solo-booths or tightly curated group presentations, as we see the fairs as an extension of our gallery space and programme. In the past years we have participated in amongst others LISTE - Art Fair Basel, NADA Miami, Art Cologne, Independent Brussels, ARCO Madrid, Artissima, Art-o-rama and Zona Maco.
For each of our exhibitions and art fair presentations we commission an art critic or curator to write an accompanying interview or an essay. These texts are printed on handouts created by Studio Hendriksen, an acclaimed Dutch graphic design studio. We deem it important that visitors can take away something analogue and tactile that contextualises what they have seen.
