Coast: London Art Fair

20-24 January 2016

Jerwood Gallery is the Museum Partner for London Art Fair 2016 at the Business Design Centre, in Islington, London from 20-24 January 2016.

London Art Fair is a major Modern British and contemporary art fair, which makes it a wonderful opportunity to showcase the Jerwood Collection and Jerwood Gallery’s 2016 exhibition programme.

Coast will feature important works from the Jerwood Collection, including paintings by Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, John Tunnard and Christopher Wood. The exhibition will also preview some of our 2016 shows.

Curated by Liz Gilmore (Director, Jerwood Gallery) and Lara Wardle (Curator, Jerwood Collection), Coast will illustrate the ways in which the British coast, as a physical and spiritual place, has shaped and influenced selected artists, from Jerwood Collection and the gallery’s contemporary programme.

Entrance to Coast is included with a valid London Art Fair ticket or invitation. For more information on visiting London Art Fair click here.
