Victoria Miro opened her gallery in cork Street in 1985. The gallery quickly earned acclaim for showing the work of established and emerging talent, as well as for nurturing the careers of young artists. In 2000, the gallery relocated to the 8,000 square-foot former factory in northeast London. In 2006, it expanded by opening a 9,000 square-foot exhibition and viewing space. The gallery is almost unique in London for having its own garden, a beautiful landscaped outside area overlooking a restored stretch of the Regent’s Canal at Wenlock Basin, which has been used to great effect for installations by gallery artists. In 2013, Victoria Miro returned to Mayfair to open a third space, occupying the ground floor of a prominent corner of St George Street and Maddox Streets and directly behind Sotheby’s in Bond Street. Victoria Miro Venice opened in May 2017. The intimate gallery space is housed in a seventeenth-century building, in the former Galleria Il Capricorno.
