Richard Malone (b. 1991, Wexford, Ireland) is a London-based, Irish-born multi-disciplinary artist and designer. Malone graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2014, winning both the Deutsche Bank Award and the LVMH Grand Prix Scholarship for his fashion collection. Malone’s collections have been supported by Fashion East and the British Fashion Council's NEWGEN schemes and shown in venues ranging from working members clubs to the Tate Britain and alongside the Raphael cartoons at the Victoria and Albert Museum. In February 2020, Malone was named the winner of the International Woolmark Prize, previously awarded to Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. As a staunch advocate for women’s rights, Malone produces his collections in strictly limited editions or completely unique pieces. Malone is strongly against the mass production involved in the fashion industry, and much of his work is fabricated from existing or waste produce. As well as his bi-annual shows at London Fashion Week, Malone’s work extends to sculpture, performance and furniture. In 2021, Malone was the first artist invited to show at Eileen Gray’s E.1027 Villa in Roqueburne, France. Malone curated and directed the project Making and Momentum : In Conversation with Eileen Gray, bringing together some of Ireland’s leading practitioners and makers to celebrate the enduring legacy of radical modernism in Ireland. The show travelled to the National Museum in Dublin and will finish in 2022 in Malone and Gray’s hometown, Wexford in Ireland. In 2017, Malone was part of the Museum of Modern Art in New York's first fashion exhibition in more than 60 years, entitled Is Fashion Modern?. Following the show, Malone became one of the youngest artists in history to be added to the museum's permanent collection, and his work was also shown at MoMA at the exhibition Energy (2019-20) as well as the museum’s permanent collection rehang. His work has featured in other group exhibitions, including: Song of Songs, Unit London, London (2021); Desire: A Revision from the 20th Century to the Digital Age, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2019-20); and in the solo show RINSE REPEAT, NOW Gallery, London (2018-19).
