Chiara Williams Contemporary Art is a peripatetic art gallery and consultancy. It is a new and independent direction for Chiara Williams, who draws on 18 years experience working in the art world, both in private and public sectors.
CWCA presents the annual SOLO Award ™ in Art Projects at the London Art Fair. Alongside this established platform for nurturing original talent, Chiara works with a small number of internationally-based artists to help further their practices, support their ambitious exhibitions and develop meaningful projects around the world. Chiara is also a collector and continues to work as a freelance international lecturer, consultant and curator.
During 8 years at WW Contemporary Art (which she co-founded 2008), Chiara Williams curated and hosted over 65 exhibitions, pioneered two collateral UK events at the 53rd & 54th Venice Biennales, established the SOLO Award ™, managed marketing, fundraising and sales, and worked with over 300 artists, curators and writers through exhibitions, exchanges, collaborations, residencies, off-site projects, commissions, publications, talks and workshops. Her background also includes 10 years as a lecturer in art history, fine art, design and media, alongside working at the Venice Biennale, the British Council and Modern Art Oxford.
