Since September 1999 the gallery has been situated in Bethnal Green, having relocated from gallerist Maureen Paleyâ€™s home, a Victorian terraced house in Londonâ€™s East End, where the gallery programme began in 1984. Initially named Interim Art, the gallery recently changed its name to Maureen Paley in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
Maureen Paley was one of the first to present work in Londonâ€™s East End and has been a pioneer of the current scene promoting and showing art from the USA and continental Europe as well as launching new talent from the UK. Gallery artists include Turner prize winners Wolfgang Tillmans and Gillian Wearing, as well as recent Turner Prize nominee Rebecca Warren. Also represented are up and coming artists such as Beckâ€™s Futures nominees Donald Urquhart, Daria Martin, Seb Patane, and Beckâ€™s futures winner Saskia Olde Wolbers.
Maureen Paley, the galleryâ€™s founder and director, was born in New York, graduating from Brown University before coming to the UK in 1977 where she took her masters in photography at The Royal College of Art.
