LONDON.- Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac
announced the appointment of Tom Hunt as a Director based in the London gallery. Toms role encompasses both primary and secondary market sales as well as working as artist liaison, curating exhibitions at the galleries..
We are delighted to have Tom join the team. He brings with him a wealth of curatorial and international art advisory experience, as well as a great appreciation of the artists we work with. Furthermore, his approach to working with artists, institutions and collectors chimes with the core values of the gallery. Thaddaeus Ropac
With over a decade of experience, Tom has worked closely with a number of the worlds leading artists, placing their works in prominent public and private collections, curating exhibitions, writing about their practice and developing relationships with curators and collectors. Tom joins the gallery from the international advisory firm Murphy & Partners, prior to which he worked for several years at Hauser & Wirth, Simon Lee and, before that, Haunch of Venison. Over this time he was instrumental in organising a large number of public commissions most recently the monumental Phyllida Barlow at Jupiter Artland sculpture park in Scotland and working alongside celebrated curators on acclaimed exhibitions, including Catherine Lampert for a School of London survey, David Anfam on Abstract Expressionism, Paul Moorhouse on Andy Warhol and Ben Tufnell on Frank Stella.
I have tremendous respect for Thaddaeus as a gallerist and am especially excited to be working closely with the gallery's outstanding roster of artists, whose work I have followed and admired for years. Since Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London opened I have repeatedly been drawn to its dynamic programme, which combines the best of what is being made now with a fresh and illuminating approach to mounting and presenting historic exhibitions. I am thrilled to now be part of the team. Tom Hunt
