Why Be Exotic In Private?
14 Dec 2018 – 08 Feb 2019
The Foundry Gallery, Chelsea
London, United Kingdom
The Foundry Gallery exhibit contemporary art that explores relationships between art and architecture. Established as part of Le Lay Architects; who reside downstairs, the gallery forms the foundation of the practices research into how architectural ideas are conceived and how people engage with buildings and structures.
As a gallery, we do not represent artists but rather each year we select three artists through application for a gallery funded exhibition for a new body of work or a development of current work which fits our philosophy. Not bound to an artistic ‘house’ style we have shown a wide range of art work informed by contemporary artistic practice, across multi-disciplines. We spend up to a year working collaboratively with an artist, contributing a supportive framework in which to explore their working practice.
Our gallery program also consists of us hiring out the gallery space which can be used for events or exhibitions by artists, gallerists and curators who are looking for a gallery space to rent in the heart of Chelsea, London. This income allows us to fund our projects with artists. The Foundry Gallery is proud to continue the artistic and working relationship with the artist long after the de-installation of the exhibition.
