AV Modern & Contemporary
Modern and contemporary art in the heart of Geneva since 2007.

AV Modern & Contemporary is distinguished for its expertise in modern, post-war and contemporary art.

Since opening its doors in 2007, the gallery has been known for organizing exceptional exhibitions including works by some of the most celebrated artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Exhibitions are accompanied by meticulously researched and thoroughly illustrated catalogues, in collaboration with leading art scholars and experts. Among exhibited artists are Boris Anisfeld, Pierre Bonnard, André Derain, Natalia Goncharova, Alexej von Jawlensky, Max Pechstein, Paul Signac, Maurice de Vlaminck, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall and Kees Van Dongen.

Since 2014, the gallery expanded its activity to include noteworthy international contemporary artists with a special focus on the South-Korean art scene. The gallery represents Choi Sangchul, Roger Pfund and Gérard Schneider.

The gallery is led by director Sofia Komarova. Schooled in St. Petersburg and Geneva, Komarova possesses a vast knowledge in acquisition and appraisal. Her expertise and discernment in attesting the authenticity of masterpieces contributed to the discovery of one of the biggest art forgers of the 21st century: Wolfgang Beltracchi.
