It has been a memorable ten years. Launched online in 2008 from Gallery Director Ben Cotton’s spare room, we opened our first gallery space in 2012. Since then, we have celebrated a diverse range of solo exhibitions and group shows. Now residing at our upgraded space in the heart of Dalston, we continue to be the only commercial art gallery in the area and have established a firm local, national and international following. Our 1500 square ft two-floor gallery space, equipped with a licensed bar, has hosted exclusive events with a cross-section of major names from the music and art world including Darryl DMC McDaniels from hip-hop’s legendary Run-DMC, where Darryl performed an intimate gig in the gallery bunker to launch his new collection of artworks.
Over the past decade, we have hosted over 20 exhibitions displaying works by over 50 artists. Hang-Ten will feature ten of our top artists, displaying exclusive new works to launch our upcoming birthday. Expect to view unseen artworks by Banksy, Harland Miller, The Connor Brothers, Sir Peter Blake, kennardphillipps, Oddly Head, Lauren Baker, Joe Webb, Johnathan Reiner and Mark Powell. These highly acclaimed artists have all played a fundamental role in building our reputation and success, and have been an integral part of our journey.
In celebration of the growing Hang-Up Editions collection, we will be releasing a handful of exclusive limited editions during the Hang-Ten festival. This includes a new screen print from The Connor Brothers, a percentage of which we will be donating to the mental health charity CALM in support of the artists continuing work with CALM ambassador Professor Green, a Joe Webb print in collaboration with pop star Dua Lipa, as well as new luxe bronze ice-cream from Oddly Head.
Throughout the ten-week celebration, we will host a number of free talks and workshops in our renowned Bunker. The selected artists will be invited to share their new releases, processes and experiences to the public alongside other important figures in the contemporary art world.
