Game Changers | Private View Launch & Photos

26 Jul 2021

After a long and forced hiatus, it was such a pleasure to finally get the chance to welcome you all back to the gallery to launch Game Changers: renegade artists defying convention. Our first official exhibition of the year, Game Changers focuses on six artists who’ve made lasting contributions to the art world over the course of the last century. From Bridget Riley to Nina Chanel Abney, each has forged a career at the top of their game, despite the fact that the odds were rigged against them.

Here's a look at the special night through the lens of Salvatore Scarpa @salvatorescarpaphoto.

"Presenting works by Bridget Riley, Nancy Fouts, Nina Chanel Abney, Swoon, Tracey Emin, Yayoi Kusama the show highlights women who are and were true artistic game changers, playing on a field that was rigged against them."

The exhibition will be showing at Hang Up Gallery from July 30 until September 17 2021. You can read more on the show and browse available works here. Don't hesitate to get in touch to request a catalogue or arrange your visit. Make sure to keep an eye on our social media for news on the show throughout its run which will include print releases, editorials, quizes and more.

"Over the course of the show, we’ll be studying what the six artists featured have done to change the art landscape themselves, including fighting against labelling according to sex, race or gender."
