Aiming to provide a significant British and international audience for its artists, the gallery also regularly punctuates its programme with historical exhibitions and curated group shows. This gives us the opportunity to present shifts in contemporary art practice and thought, whilst broadening the dialogue with artists outside of the gallery programme.

The gallery publishes catalogues and artist’s monographs and collaborates with museums and other commercial galleries to give its artists exposure outside London and to provide them with a rigorous context.
In addition to its UK activity, the gallery opened a permanent gallery space in Hong Kong in 2012, helping to introduce gallery artists to a wider public in Hong Kong and Asia. In the past years, the Hong Kong gallery has developed a fully independent programme, working with artists from the Simon Lee stable, and inviting participation from other artists and curators to create a broader context and framework.

Es ist bemerkenswert, wie viele warmherzige Umschreibungen Museumsdirektor Sam Keller für eine Kunst findet, die zunächst so kühl wirkt. Ihm gehe es mit Rudolf Stingel wie bei einer Wanderung in den Bergen, wenn man denkt, die Sonne sei jetzt aber wirklich untergegangen, man dann einen neuen Gipfel erreicht und sie wieder scheinen sieht. Der...
Michelangelo Pistoletto (b. 1933, Biella, Italy) is widely recognised as one of the most influential contemporary artists of his generation and a leading proponent of the Arte Povera movement.
