Event Details

London Art Week adapted well to the challenges presented by Covid-19 in 2020 and was one of the first major international art events to launch a digital platform in June. Devised from the outset as a dual-aspect event, LAW 2020 took place ‘virtually’ online, and with a number of concurrent physical exhibitions that were able to open safely in participants’ galleries – not only in London but also in several cities around the world, including New York and Paris.

The LAW Board decided to continue with the same dual format for 2021. London Art Week Digital takes place online, and participating galleries hold exhibitions in their gallery spaces as long as local regulations allow. The London Art Week website hosts a large selection of works for sale from participants, and at the same time offers an extensive virtual events programme involving dealers, museum curators and collectors – an initiative that was applauded last year and attracted attendees from around the world in their thousands.

This year the Board has proposed a theme – Revolution & Renewal – and invited all participants to contribute suitable works to a special online exhibition devoted to this topic. The theme provides a basis for online events and talks. Inspired by 2020, Revolution & Renewal is intended in every sense of the phrase, asking participants to offer a work that expresses their own interpretations of the terms: whether political, social or art-historical revolutions, or the renewal accorded by nature, friendships, well-being or spirituality.

Among exhibitors at LAW Summer 2021 will be first-time participants The Fine Art Society and Elliott Fine Art (Director Will Elliott, formerly at Colnaghi), alongside returning galleries such as Didier Aaron, Benappi Fine Art, Ben Elwes Fine Art, Georg Laue Kunstkammer Ltd, Lullo•Pampoulides, Stephen Ongpin Fine Art, Karen Taylor Fine Art, Tomasso Brothers Fine Art, Guy Peppiatt Fine Art, Trinity Fine Art, Sotheby’s and Christie’s. The LAW Board is delighted to welcome back Philip Mould & Company, Agnews and Sladmore Gallery all of whom re-joined the event in 2020. Eminent Old Master paintings dealer Johnny van Haeften also returns.

Confirmed exhibitions at London Art Week Summer 2021 include Portraiture 1800-1950 (Elliott Fine Art), an 80th birthday retrospective of renowned South African artist-potter Hylton Nel (The Fine Art Society), Italian Renaissance featuring museum quality sculpture and painting at Colnaghi (illustration right) and Medieval Treasury Objects (Sam Fogg).
