LONDON.- The Arts Club, London, announces Block Party, a group exhibition which brings together the gallery community of Dover and Grafton Streets, including: Cardi Gallery, Gazelli Art House, Galerie Max Hetzler, Sprüth Magers, Richard Saltoun, Robilant + Voena, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac and David Zwirner. Each gallery showcases an artwork from its roster of artists including: Lucio Fontana, Paolo Scheggi, Rose Wylie, Helen Chadwick, Louise Bonnet, Giovanni Ozzola, Gary Hume, Jack Pierson and Mimmo Rotella.

The Arts Club has been at its home on Dover Street since 1896, surviving two world wars, including a direct hit on the building during the Blitz of 1940, as well as political and economic anomalies over the years. A historic neighbourhood, art has played a key role is the area’s identity and cultural development.

A creative collaboration in celebration of the vibrancy of the street’s arts community, the exhibition shows togetherness. Community is at the heart of a block party – a street celebration where one goes to be entertained, engage in conversation and get to know their neighbours. Today, perhaps more than ever, we collectively feel the need for community. Despite these uncertain times, resilience, creativity and art endure, and The Arts Club’s neighbours embrace this by showing together in this exhibition.




The Arts Club re-opened on 4 July, upholding social distancing guidelines and safety measures. It hopes to be able to host a more block party-style evening event before the end of the show. In the meantime, it encourages those visiting the Club to also schedule visits with galleries on the street, who have taken careful precautions to now re-open with enhanced safety measures in accordance with city guidelines.

This exhibition is curated by Amelie von Wedel, Pernilla Holmes and Jessica Ziskind of Wedel Art.

Since its foundation in 1863 as a Club ‘instituted for the purpose of facilitating the social intercourse of those connected with, or interested in Art, Literature or Science’, The Arts Club has gained international recognition as the London hub for artists, writers and creatives. The Club has a rich and expanding collection of contemporary art and a carefully curated exhibition and events programme which is attentive to international trends while maintaining a focus on British artists.

In the course of its existence, the Club has included amongst its members many outstanding figures in the history of art, literature and science. Today, The Arts Club is a place for creative and entrepreneurial patrons to come together to meet, exchange ideas, dine and participate in the Club’s various events.
