Belmacz is a contemporary art gallery and showroom based in central London. The gallery focuses on supporting artists to grow their practice; working with them to develop specific solo exhibitions and projects, as well as by re-contextualising their work through renowned group exhibitions. Belmacz’s showroom is a space dedicated to displaying Julia Muggenburg’s jewellery.
Founded in 2000 by Julia Muggenburg, ‘Belmacz’ is a composite name: combining the male adjective ‘bel’ (from the French for beautiful), ‘maximum,’ and ‘cz’ (from the Slavic alphabet). With a further reference to the iconic 20th century jeweller Suzanne Belperron, ‘Belmacz’ alludes to Muggenburg’s founding vision for the gallery as well as her expansive design practice.
