YALLAY was founded in 2013 by Jean-Marc Decrop in Hong Kong’s Wong Chuk Hang arts district. The gallery exhibits the work of artists from China, Indonesia, South Asia, the Middle East and Pakistan. It is one of the first galleries in Asia to showcase art from the Arab, Iranian and Turkish contemporary art scenes. Decrop, a registered expert affiliated with the National Chamber of Experts (CNES) and the European Federation of Experts (CEDEA), is among the earliest collectors and dealers of first generation Chinese contemporary artists. Having settled in Hong Kong in 1993, he has since curated numerous institutional shows and collaborated with artists to produce pioneering, monographic exhibitions. Yallay Gallery is a member of the HKAGA (Hong Kong Art Gallery Association) and the SICD (South Island Cultural District).
