Massimo De Carlo gallery was founded in Milano in 1987. Since the beginning Massimo De Carlo gallery program included young and prominent artists such as, among others, Alighiero Boetti, Rudolf Stingel, Maurizio Cattelan, and Yan Pei-Ming. The global affirmation of these and the other artists of the gallery has favored its on-going success. Massimo De Carlo opened his first space in central London in 2009 under the name Carlson Gallery. Together with working with the artists traditionally represented by the gallery, the London space has also based its program on the work of young American artists.
