Special Feature: LAW Digital presents Revolution and Renewal, a group selling exhibition online featuring works from every participant, guest-curated by Dr. Arturo Galansino, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence London Art Week, the in-gallery fair with its heart in the traditional art land of Mayfair and St. James’s, features leading international dealers offering exceptional paintings, drawings, sculptures, fine ceramics, works for the Kunstkammer and objets d’art for sale - spanning antiquity to the modern day, with a focus on Early, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Modern works of outstanding quality.
The hybrid event takes place from 2-16 July 2021 and allows dealers from across the world to show together on LAW's digital platform as well as hosting physical exhibitions in their own galleries, local regulations permitting. LAW Digital allows easy access to art connoisseurs from around the world, and is accompanied by an extensive talks programme with the participation of prominent museum curators, including the National Gallery in London and Frick Madison in New York.
The advantage of London Art Week over traditional single-venue art fairs is that, given the often-changing Covid 19 regulations, LAW can go ahead in its normal 'live' format as long as galleries are allowed to open; indeed, the intimate spaces of a small, individual art gallery ensures the optimal safety and viewing conditions for visitors. As a result, the event continues to be a major focal point in the year for many participants and attracts a global audience of important collectors and museum curators, with many of the high profile exhibitors staging carefully-curated selling exhibitions, often years in the making, alongside the summer sales at the major auction houses.
Revolution and Renewal: LAW Digital Summer 2021 introduces this themed online exhibition as part of its collaboration with museums. London Art Week is delighted to welcome as guest curator the eminent art historian, curator and scholar Dr. Arturo Galansino, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. The online exhibition will have its own section on the LAW website and all participants will be invited to submit a work on the theme for consideration by Dr. Galansino (see separate Revolution and Renewal release).
