What is the London Art Biennale
London is the global art capital and the London Art Biennale is where the contemporary art of the world is presented. The first edition of the London Art Biennale takes place in January 2013 and there will be artists that have been exhibited in some of the most important museums in the world as well as emerging artists who have been selected for their talent. The London Art Biennale is solely dedicated to works on canvas, sculptures and drawings.
This prestigious exhibition that takes place on the King's Road, Chelsea, where artists such as Augustus John and Alma Tadema created what is known as the true artistic centre of London.
The Chelsea Old Town Hall was designed by John Brydon in 1885, an architect who was commissioned to realise very important projects including the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Memorial Hospital, the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath and the Government Offices Great George Street in London.
The Town Hall offers an elegant Victorian setting with an ornate vaulted ceiling, brass chandeliers and mahogany paneled walls. A magnificent bow fronted stage with stairs curves down to the floor creating a warm atmosphere while the original artworks depicting historical characters associated with Chelsea provide a sense of heritage. The Chelsea Old Town Hall is the ideal setting for this celebration of contemporary art which is the London Art Biennale.
