The Simon Lee Gallery was founded by Simon Lee in 2002 in Berkeley Street, Mayfair. The premise of the Simon Lee Gallery has been from the start to re-present the work of established artists of diverse generations from Europe and the USA to a UK audience from an informed perspective and with a fresh and critical eye.
The gallery also promotes younger artists from Europe and the USA whose work defines a new relationship to the conceptual and regularly punctuates its programme with historical exhibitions and curated group shows which enables the gallery to present a lively perspective on contemporary art practice and thought, and to continue a broader dialogue with artists outside of the gallery programme. Within the London context, the Simon Lee Gallery provides a radical platform from which to present artists and their ideas.
Simon Lee Gallery collaborates with museums and other commercial galleries to give its artists exposure outside London. It also publishes catalogues and artist monographs endeavouring to provide a precise and rigorous context in which its artists can be viewed. In conjunction with the gallery’s emphasis on providing a point of public access to the work of many artists, the gallery also regularly hosts and invites educational groups from museums, art schools and universities from both the UK and abroad.
As a direct extension of the London Headquarters, May 2012 saw the inauguration of Simon Lee Gallery in Pedder Building, Hong Kong under the directorship of Katherine Schaefer. Showing leading artists such as Sherrie Levine, Larry Clark and Matias Faldbakken for the first time in Asia, Simon Lee Gallery’s Hong Kong space aims to introduce the gallery artists to a wider public in Hong Kong. Since inception, Simon Lee Gallery in Hong Kong has integrated with the thriving Asian scene of internationally renowned artistic activities, providing a platform in Asia for their conceptual artists as well as younger artists outside of the programme such as Andre Komatsu and Carla Zaccagnini.
Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa were showing work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well as pieces by a new generation of emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality were on display in the main exhibition hall....
