About

  • Nomadic Gallery with international programming across diverse venues.

    Cynthia Corbett Gallery, a London-based Contemporary art gallery, was established by American former economist, art historian and curator Cynthia Valianti Corbett in 2004. The Gallery is an international nomadic art gallery representing emerging and established contemporary artists, and has a broad annual exhibition programme including international art fairs and collaborative projects worldwide. The Gallery’s represented and guest artists come from British, American and international backgrounds, whose works have been published and acquired by major museums, institutions, and private collections.

    In 2009, Cynthia Corbett launched the Young Masters Art Prize, a unique, not-for-profit curatorial platform supporting emerging international artists. The Prize celebrates artistic skill and innovation, with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past. An independent judging panel that includes renowned art historians, collectors, curators and art professionals, selects the winners. In 2014 the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramic Prize was added to focus more attention on the growing interest in the collection of contemporary craft and 2017 saw the launch of the inaugural Young Masters Emerging Women Award, and the fifth edition and 10th Anniversary Exhibition of the Prize took place in October 2019. The most recent Young Masters initiative is the curatorial platform; Focus on the Female. Developed as an artistic and philanthropic antidote to the disproportionate impact of the COVID pandemic on women, Focus on the Female was launched with a dedicated exhibition, culminating in an awards ceremony in October 2021, with awards sponsored by Young Masters patrons.
