Robert McNally selected by Jake and Dinos Chapman
Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 22nd edition of Artist of the Day, a valuable platform for emerging artists since 1983. This one week exhibition showcases the work of five artists, chosen not by the gallery, but by established professional practitioners who have each nominated a talent of their choice.
Each selected artist will present a solo body of work at our Cork Street Gallery for one day only, open for public view 11am - 7pm. The selected artist will be present throughout the day, and the selector will also attend to discuss the collection with visitors. None of the chosen practitioners have exhibited with Flowers Gallery to date, and for many this will be their inaugural show in the UK capital. On Saturday 4th July, a group exhibition featuring all of the artists will be held from 11am - 6pm, providing a second chance to view the work.
The (original and longrunning) criteria for selection are talent, originality, promise and the ability to benefit from a one-day exhibition of their work. The chosen artists for 2015 cover the fields of drawing, painting, sculpture and photography, offering a unique glimpse into rising stars of the art world as chosen by some of the most prominent figures in contemporary art.
Refreshments will be served 12 - 2pm daily.
