Based in Connaught Village on London’s Hyde Park Estate, close to Hyde Park and Oxford Street, Dellasposa showcases and presents original limited editions by an international selection of modern and contemporary artists united by their timelessness and strong conceptual foundations.Read More
It was established in 2016 by gallerist and curator Jessica Corbet McBride and art professional and collector Julian Phillimore, exhibiting in locations around Mayfair. From its permanent Connaught Village location, opened in 2018, the gallery engages in a conversationally-focused exhibition programme informed by topical contemporary discourse.
Presenting both contemporary and modern art from around the world, Dellasposa’s diverse roster of artists encompasses a range of practices spanning much of the 20th and 21st centuries.
It includes some of the biggest names in contemporary art including the infamous anonymous street artist Banksy, British conceptual and contemporary art titan Damien Hirst, world-renowned sculptural installation artist Anish Kapoor, Op Art’s stalwart cornerstone Bridget Riley, and conceptually-driven Japanese photographer and architectHiroshi Sugimoto.
Also represented, are younger and lesser-known mid-career and emerging artists such as Cleon Peterson, whose paintings draw upon European cultural history to bluntly show harsh worldly realities and senseless violence; London street artist-turned-printmaker Ben Eine; and London-based painter Tahnee Lonsdale, who produces large vibrant surreal and semi-abstract canvases.
Alongside its diverse contemporary stable, Dellasposa presents the work of modern masters including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Lucian Freud, Sonia Delaunay, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Dellasposa Exhibitions and Art Fairs
Starting from a diverse set of curatorial ambitions, Dellasposa hosts an extensive programme of exhibitions on modern and contemporary artists and topics.
Alongside solo exhibitions presenting new works and new insights from an artist’s practice, Dellasposa presents a balanced selection of group shows that establish conversations with the past or engage with contemporary art discourse.
Shows such as Modern Masters in Print (2018), and Modern Mavericks (2019) survey and engage with the legacy of some of the most influential modernists. On the other hand, exhibitions like Lasting Impressions (2020) survey more recent developments in contemporary art–sometimes from a topical standpoint as with the all-women show The Future is Female (2019). The latter challenging the art world’s gender imbalance while surveying a new wave of feminism.
Reaching out beyond the gallery space, Dellasposa coordinates exhibitions engaging with spaces significant to the development of modern and contemporary art. Dellasposa x Home House (2020) for example bringing work by the gallery’s artists to the storied London members club, Home House–a Grade 1 listed 1784-built Georgian townhouse–which, under various leasers and owners for the last 100 years, has been a critical hub for discussion of the past and future of the arts.
In addition shows such as Contemporary Desert Art (2019)–a survey of contemporary Australian aboriginal artists in collaboration with Frewen Arts–explore less familiar art contexts.
Presenting its artists to a broader audience, Dellasposa also participates in several major art events in and around London, including Photo London, London Art Fair and Henley Festival.
