Pilar Ordovas

Advisory Group Member



Pilar Ordovas founded her eponymous gallery, dealing in the best of 20th century and contemporary art with a museum-quality exhibition programme, in 2011. Grounded in 21 years of specialist experience, the gallery has organised exhibitions in conjunction with a number of leading institutions, including The Courtauld and Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The gallery stages three exhibitions a year in London, and one each fall in New York, and has shown works by many of the world’s most important artists and sculptors, from Frank Auerbach and Francis Bacon to Frida Kahlo and Alberto Giacometti.


Previously Ordovas worked for 13 years at Christie’s, where she was International Director and Deputy Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art in Europe, and two years as a Director of Gagosian Gallery in London.
