With the fusion of art, fashion and popular culture, greater numbers want to engage with London’s art scene.
But contemporary art can be baffling, and traditional art stuffy.
So we started The London Art Salon.
Our talks and gallery walks are social, buzzy and bring London’s art world to life.
The London Art Salon makes art accessible to anyone with an interest. Structured around a series of talks and tours by leading experts, the Salon seeks to illuminate and inspire, complimented by a fantastic social scene and the opportunity to meet like-minded people in an intimate, informal setting.
Think of The London Art Salon as a reinvention of the scene-setting salons of Paris, reimagined for 21st century London - a place to find out about the best culture the city has to offer, without any of the grandstanding or doublespeak. A place to be invigorated, to meet new friends and immerse yourself in a world of art.CURRENT SEASON
London’s art scene is one of the most vibrant and rich in the world. Attention-grabbing art fairs, high-end galleries and leading auction houses all place the city at the heart of the international art market, while a thriving museum scene continually reinterprets art history, with blockbuster exhibitions packed with sell-out crowds.
The flip side of this heady mix is that London’s art world can often appear daunting to the outsider. Contemporary galleries can initially feel cold and unwelcoming, with complicated jargon creating a barrier to an appreciation of the art on show. The London Art Salon pulls down that barrier.MORE ABOUT US
