Current Season

January - May 2019: Hidden in plain sight

"She's managed to star in her pictures without giving anything away."
The Guardian about artist Cindy Sherman

Our art talks this season examine what is hidden, yet on display for those who look. We explore the spiritual similarity of Michelangelo and Bill Viola, disclose Vincent Van Gogh’s desires, and put a spotlight on Cindy Sherman’s array of disguised personas.

Also, we'll be leading tours at museums and commercial galleries to uncover what's fresh and cutting edge in today's London.

New for 2019, our 6-session course Modern and Contemporary Art in 6 Easy Pieces takes place in London’s best museums and galleries, examining and engaging with stimulating works of art, starting with Impressionism and ending at today’s emerging East London galleries.

Whether you are new to the art world or a knowledgeable art lover, you are welcome at the London Art Salon's invigorating social events.
