What Is Art, What Makes It Valuable?
While some artists are keeping a very traditional approach to art, others are taking risks into the unknown and there has always been a constant debate about “What Is Art” and what makes it valuable.
In contemporary world success can be seen in both approaches, great examples are Damien Hirst and David Hockney, two of the worlds most famous and richest artists and yet with such a different approach to contemporary art.
The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between different approaches to contemporary art and to demonstrate that either way can be successful.
This Exhibition Will Take Place At Our Newly Opened Space In Tower Bridge.
The new space is located in Tower bridge, one of most iconic places in the world and the most visited place in the whole UK.
The space is nestled between modern and classic London icons: The Shard 4 minutes away, Tower Bridge 1 minute away, London Bridge 2 minutes away.
With a blend of traditional Victorian brick walls and a central private bar just for our audience, the space is unique in the whole city of London.

If you are one of the accepted artist and you find it hard to ship your work to us, you can send us photos of your work and we can print and frame it for you at no additional cost.
We have 3 available sizes for the frame:
