Founded in 2015, Maximillian William operated a nomadic programme – curating shows internationally – until opening its permanent gallery space in Fitzrovia in September 2019.

At the core of the gallery’s programme is its principle of engaging and facilitating emerging talent. The gallery represents a small roster of artists, all of whom it took on at early stages in their careers. It has bolstered a progressive journey with each, taking care to ensure their longevity. Maximillian William has organised solo shows in institutions such as Lever House Art Collection, NYC, Fondazione Stelline, Milan, Daelim Museum, Seoul and MEP, Paris.

The gallery has produced several artist books and catalogues, with essays by renowned curators and writers such as Michele Robecchi and Lucy Soutter. Since opening its Fitzrovia space, Maximillian William has presented solo exhibitions by Reginald Sylvester II and Magda Skupinska, and the group show Role Play, comprising Somaya Critchlow, Lenz Geerk and Philip Guston.
