London Gallery Weekend launches 2021

4- 6 June, 2021

We are taking part in the inaugural edition of London Gallery Weekend, a collaboration between galleries across London, held over the weekend of 4-6 June 2021. Stay tuned to hear about our special LGW events.

 

Over 80 of London’s leading contemporary art galleries are coming together this summer to launch a new annual three-day event, London Gallery Weekend (LGW), with the inaugural edition set for 4–6 June 2021.

 

A first for the UK capital, this democratic, peer-led initiative represents a future-facing art landscape which embraces the community and mutual support of a diverse London gallery network. Over a dynamic three-day public event, which is free to attend, LGW will host a rich public programme of discussions, studio visits, children's events, late openings and performances across the city,
produced by participating galleries. A VIP programme of events designed for curators and collectors will run alongside.

 

This new art world event unites the galleries of the capital, which are zoned into three areas of London. LGW will promote a daily focus on a geographical area, starting with central London on Friday, followed by south London on Saturday and culminating on Sunday with galleries in the East End. Powered by London-based art technology company Artlogic, the LGW website will be the key information and navigation tool to enable visitors to map their visits across
the city.

 

A grassroots initiative developed to harness the energy of the London gallery scene, LGW emerged as an idea over lockdown in London, during which time new connections were forged online between art dealers and gallerists united by common challenges presented by the pandemic. LGW is run by committees  combining gallery representatives from east, central and south London, each

bringing individual strengths in VIP relations, communications, finance and operations to benefit the wider network of the gallery landscape.

 

This first, city-wide celebration of contemporary art has been forged with the ambition to become firmly rooted in the European calendar, as an annually important event which draws collectors and international art lovers to London over the summer each year.
