Modern Art

Established: 1998

Modern Art is a London based gallery opened by Stuart Shave in 1998. In 20 years the gallery has occupied six locations in east and central London, presently being homed in a converted 5,000 sq ft pre-war factory building in the Clerkenwell area of central London. Each year Modern Art participates in art fairs in Basel, Hong Kong, Miami, London, and New York.

The gallery has a diverse intergenerational and international programme. Modern Art’s intention is to assist artists in the development of their practices and the creation of new work by fostering relationships between artists, institutions, collectors, curators, and audiences. Artists represented by Modern Art participate in exhibitions at the highest international level with museums, foundations, biennales and collections.

In October 2017 Modern Art opened a second space, in a purpose built 6,000 sq ft gallery in London’s East End. The gallery has continued to present concurrent exhibitions in both spaces.
