Returning to their West London roots, Bartha Contemporary are happy to announce the opening of their latest space in London’s Notting Hill. Located at 7 Ledbury Mews North off Ledbury Road, the former photography Studio offers art enthusiasts an unexpected setting to enjoy and purchase art. The street-level space will host displays by artists that share an interest in abstraction in a focused and relaxed setting.
The gallery, founded in 2000, is run by Daniela & Niklas von Bartha; the German/Swiss couple’s interests in Art, Design, and Architecture continue to inform the gallery’s program. Shows at Bartha Contemporary are often on display for a short time and change regularly. An exhibition of recent large-scale works on paper by London based Italian artist Giulia Ricci starting June 22 will be on display until mid-July. The show, accompanied by a limited edition publication available online for free at gricci.art, was initially planned for the spring of 2020 at the former St James's showroom and postponed due to the pandemic.
An exhibition by London based artist Susan Morris, a two-person presentation with Lucinda Burgess and Frank Gerritz and a showcase of works on paper by Marfa TX-based artist Nick Terry and recent paintings by Cologne-based artist Stephan Baumkötter are some of the presentations planned this year.
Bartha Contemporary is a member of the recently formed Gallery Climate Coalition, Board member of the Foundation for Conceptual Art, Soest, Germany and an advisor to the James Howell Foundation, New York, USA.
