Angela Flowers at 80 A Career Celebration
"Angela is credited with an intuition that has seen her pre-figure the BritArt explosion and trail-blaze the artistic route to East London. She is one of few gallerists to have succeeded in guiding her business through five recessions, and on the way has helped to promote the careers of artists including Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley, Ron Mueck, Jake and Dinos Chapman,Tony Cragg, Richard Long, Marc Quinn and Anthony Caro. She was the first UK galleriest to show Lucian Freud's Benefits Supervisor Sleeping and, always at the forefront of the Avant-garde, was staging exhibitions of performance art, installations and colour photography long before they were embraced by the wider art world.
It was Angela's belief in the power of new ideas that set her among the first to embrace what is now commonplace: an online gallery presence, and this same belief that led her to launch 'Artist of the Day': a single-day exhibition of work by one artist selected to show at the gallery by another artist, which continues to this day."
