London, United Kingdom
Simon Lee Gallery was founded in 2002 in Mayfair, London. It represents artists of diverse generations from Europe and the USA, whose practices range from sculpture and painting to video and photography, sharing a broad interest in an exploration of the conceptual.
Aiming to provide a significant British and international audience to 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. These projects combined with the gallery programme further the commitment to a discourse on art and culture in the London context.
The gallery publishes catalogues and artist monographs and collaborates with museums and other commercial galleries to give its artists exposure outside London and provide them a rigorous context to be viewed.
In addition to its UK activity, the gallery has been building a presence in Hong Kong and has now opened a space in the Pedder Building in order to introduce gallery artists to a wider public in Hong Kong and Asia.
