Dürst Britt & Mayhew was founded in The Hague 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 an abundance of experimental non-for-profit spaces.
Jaring Dürst Britt formerly worked as business coordinator for Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory in Utrecht and as artistic director of Nieuwe Vide in Haarlem. He is a board member of De Zaak Nu, a Dutch interest group representing artists’ initiatives and presentation organizations.
Alexander Mayhew has written for various publications such as Metropolis M and Tubelight and was a board member of the Dutch section of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). In 2013-2014 he participated in the second edition of the pioneering Gallerist Programme of de Appel arts centre in Amsterdam.
Dürst Britt & Mayhew is committed to helping artists from different national and artistic backgrounds to further develop their practice. The gallery offers a platform for a more experimental approach to exhibition-making with the aim of reaching both Dutch and international audiences. We are housed in a former garage in a multicultural neighbourhood, just a four-minute walk from Den Haag HS train station.
