Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 24th edition of Artist of the Day, a vital West End exhibition programme selected by leading contemporary artists since 1983. The revolving two week exhibition platform showcases the work of eleven artists whose work deserves increased recognition and exposure. Each receives a one day solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery’s Mayfair location, with a programme of events taking place each day.
Selectors from past years have included Patrick Caulfield, Helen Chadwick, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Maggi Hambling, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker, Bridget Riley and Gavin Turk. Previously selected artists have included Juno Calypso (who returns this year as a selector), Billy Childish, Adam Dant, Dexter Dalwood, Nicola Hicks and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
“Artist of the Day has given a platform and context to artists who may not have exhibited much before, accompanied by the support and dedication of their selectors. The relationship between the selector and the artist adds an intimate power to the exhibitions.” – Matthew Flowers
