Established in 2019, Informality is an international contemporary art gallery based in the United Kingdom, situated in the Oxfordshire town of Henley-on-Thames. The gallery was founded between arts advisor Frederick McDonald and a private collector of international contemporary art. Informality has focused its programming around themes of the environment and co-existence, working with an international selection of artists on site-specific collaborations. The programme encourages its artists to use exploratory practices that reinvent traditional mediums.Read More
Informality’s first group show, Symbiosis (31 October 2019–11 January 2020), embodied the gallery’s core ethos of exploring the themes of co-existence and the environment. The show brought together several artists on the gallery’s roster and beyond to explore the relationship between their art and the environment. Such themes have remained consistent through the gallery’s thematically curated shows.
Informality enhances its exhibition programme with accompanying talks and lectures. In February 2020 McDonald inaugurated the Informality Lecture Series, which involves talks tailored to aid emerging collectors in researching artists and understanding the art market.
Informality beyond the white cube
Outside of the gallery’s own walls, Informality has committed to site-specific collaborations. In late 2019 Informality collaborated with Jamie North and Pi Artworks to bring the artists first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, Inflection (11–17 November 2019, Pi Artworks), to Central London’s Fitzrovia district. The bustling metropolis provided a poignant location for a show exploring the current climate crisis and the fragility of human cities in the face of nature.
