Hales Gallery - London - United Kingdom

Hales Gallery opened in 1992 as an alternative space in Deptford, South London. From this unlikely venue, Paul Hedge and Paul Maslin successfully launched the careers of a number of emerging British artists at that time, including among many others, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Mike Nelson and Sarah Jones.

The venue's café became a social focal point for artists and created a good environment for the development and exchange of ideas. Both the gallery and café were regularly written about in the art press, national and international newspapers and attracted worldwide media attention.

In 1997 Hales became a commercial gallery and began to represent artists from international backgrounds including Tomoko Takahashi, Spencer Tunick, Hew Locke and Hans Op de Beeck. In 2004 Hales moved to its current new gallery space designed by architects HawkinsBrown in the Tea Building in London's East End.

Grosvenor Gallery - London - United Kingdom

Grosvenor Gallery was first established by the American sociologist and writer EricEstoric (1913-1993) who began to collect works of art when he came to live in England after the Second World War. Estorick’s love affair with the art world began while he was a student in New York University in the 1930s. In the college library, where Estorick spent long hours, he was exposed to one of the most important collections of 20th century art. It contained the works of almost every famous artist of the period – Braque, Arp, Brancusi, Gonzales, Klee, Leger, Matisse and more. This collection was to have a major influence on him.

Estorick moved to England in 1947 after his marriage to Salome Dessau. In the initial years, the couple developed a major collection of Italian art, which at one time was considered the most important collection of Italian art outside Italy. It was exhibited in major exhibitions including the one at the Tate Gallery in 1956. It was then that Estorick became a full time art dealer and went on to establish the Grosvenor Gallery in 1960, with its first premise on Davies Street. It was the largest and best equipped gallery in England at the time. The old Grosvenor Gallery that specialized in the Pre-Raphaelites had closed in 1906.

Around this time, several of the older galleries of London closed down. A number of young British artists associated with these galleries joined Estorick in his new venture. This move along with Estorick’s own remarkable collection of 20th century art led Grosvenor Gallery to prominence.

Grosvenor Gallery went on to exhibit some of the major European artists of the time – some for the first time in London such as Magritte, Picasso, Sironi, Chagall, Lissitzky and Archipenko. Grosvenor Gallery also represented an impressive group of young artists such as Michael Ayrton, Jack Smith, Prunella Clough, John Hoskin and Karl Weschke. Estorick also added the already well known artists F.N. Souza and Paul Feiler. It held important exhibitions of Italian art such as First Image in 1963 including the works by the painter Enrico Baj and sculptors Cascella and Silvestri, a major retrospective exhibition of paintings by Sironi.

Apart from Western European art, the Gallery was the principal outlet in the West for modern art from Eastern Europe. It also sold works by living Soviet artists, which was a major accomplishment for a Western gallery. Furthermore Estorick championed several South African artists notably Stern, Dumile and Kumalo.

The Gallery was located on Albermale street in the 1990s and then in 2000 it moved to Ryder Street. It was still dealing in Modern British and International Art while exhibiting primarily Modern and Contemporary Indian art.

The artist F.N. Souza has been a focus, his first show was The Human and the Divine Predicament (1964), followed by Black Art and Other Paintings (1966) followed by shows in 1998, 2001, 2002, 2005 at the Tate Britain in London and 2 shows in New York in 2005 and 2008.

In 2006, Grosvenor Gallery collaborated with Vadehra Art Gallery in New Delhi to form Grosvenor Vadehra. The purpose of this collaboration was to promote international art in India and Indian art in the United Kingdom. There were three inaugural exhibitions of Indian art at the time The Moderns Revisited, Inverting/Inventing Traditions and Here and Now: Young Voices from India, which were all well received in London. Since then the Gallery has has continued to have exhibitions of modern and contemporary Indian art. It also had exhibitions of international art in India including a Pablo Picasso exhibition in 2006 and a highly acclaimed exhibition of Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon along with Tyeb Mehta and F.N. Souza in 2007.

The gallery currently also represents two of the finest living painters in the UK, Mark Shields and Victor Newsome.

Going forward Grosvenor Gallery will continue to focus on showing the best Modern and Contemporary Art from India and Britain and as well as some masterpieces.

Louisa Guinness Gallery - London - United Kingdom

Work with today’s leading sculptors and painters to make jewellery. Collect and deal in past artist’s works focusing especially on jewellery.

The Gallery opened in May 2003 with an exhibition of Donald Judd Furniture. This was followed by a Ron Arad exhibition which confirmed interest in a new and developing market. The world of design meets function meets furniture meets art; Louisa Guinness identified a growing interest in this and decided to concentrate on inviting artists better known for their skills in the world of painting or sculpture to try their hand at inventing functional objects. Then followed the ‘Minimalist’ exhibition and ‘Garden furniture’ with works by Yves Klein, Rachel Whiteread, Richard Wentworth, Sol LeWitt. For further details see individual pages on exhibitions or artists.

This trend developed further. Having discovered that Picasso, Braque and Calder, to name but a few of the old masters, had made jewellery; Louisa Guinness decided to explore this angle also. She approached Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley and Sam Taylor Wood and worked with them to realise some wonderful new pieces to bring the exhibition of ‘Past and Present – Jewellery by 20th Century artists’ up to date. This was the beginning of a new era.

Each new work is published in a small edition to the highest standard. Most are handmade in London’s famous Hatton Garden district or the artist’s studio. Handmade leather boxes, some with Perspex lids have been made in order to display the jewellery. The ethos behind the jewellery is that it serves as small sculpture whist it is not being worn, it can sit on a coffee table or in a dressing room as a work of art.

Louisa Guinness uncovered a new market, rich with ancient gems in the homes of some lucky collectors and occasionally appearing at auction and decided this was an area she intended to focus on. Her husband, Ben Brown has taken over dealing with Ron Arad and Louisa Guinness spends her time talking to artists and jewellery makers and creating new works of jewellery to add to her stable. She has established herself as the leading dealer in artist’s jewellery in the world.

Guillochon Gallery - London - United Kingdom

Guillochon Gallery focuses on work by artists who combine traditional skills with contemporary concerns. We support work that is visually pleasing while retaining a degree of intellectual integrity.

Instead of adhering purely to the established gallery model, the current climate has allowed Guillochon Gallery to adopt a slightly different approach to exhibiting. The gallery combines a permanent space while also making use of the plethora of unoccupied properties in London, unlocking opportunities to obtain unusual and exciting exhibition venues and bringing contemporary art further to the doorstep of the general public.

In another move away from the established gallery model, the gallery does not represent artists, instead choosing to exhibit the work of artists.

FOLD Gallery - London - United Kingdom

FOLD Gallery London was established in 2008 in an old warehouse in Hackney’s London Fields.

Originally run as a crossover between a commercial gallery and a project space, FOLD specialised in producing group shows. These gave the opportunity for UK based and international artists from emerging to mid-career practices to be brought together by strongly themed shows. The principle goal behind the theme based group exhibitions was to expand the reach of the gallery by constantly bringing in new audiences.

Now re-located in the heart of Clerkenwell, FOLD Gallery continues to push its reach to new audiences. Although now the programme is certainly more commercially viable, the focus still remains on strongly themed shows. Now punctuated with significant solo shows, the gallery programme continues to strive to present all of the artists work within context, to give the viewer the best opportunity to gain understanding of the intentions of the artist, whilst viewing the work displayed to the highest possible standards.
