Charting New Horizons: an interview with Katrine Levin, Founder of Katrine Levin Galleries

Katrine Levin Galleries was launched in 2017, as a destination to discover extraordinary contemporary artists from places less explored. The idea was inspired by a trip to her step-father’s hometown in Kunming, the capital of China’s frontier Yunnan Province, where she was stunned by the calibre of art, depth of knowledge and experimentation. Katrine commits long-term to a small selection of masters of diverse styles, curating solo exhibitions for each. She immerses herself into the artists’ cultures, intimate stories, and places that inspired and informed their art to engage the viewers in a new perspective and to share a unique experience, insight and an intimate connection to each artist. 

Prior to establishing the gallery, Katrine practised Intellectual Property (IP) law in New York City and London for 15 years and attained an MLitt in History of Art from Renaissance to Modernism from Christie’s Education London. www.katrinelevin.com/

Dedicated to foregrounding the cultural context of such diverse works, Katrine Levin Galleries represents a range of dynamic practitioners who currently live and practice in their home country. The current focus is on Southwest China and Georgia.

Services offered include commissions by represented artists and consulting work

The gallery stages pop-up exhibitions in central London and Manhattan and has a strong online presence.
