Chelsea Old Town Hall
The London Art Biennale 2019 was honoured by Lady Sophie Windsor who graciously inaugurated the exhibition and opened the vernissage. Lady Sophie, formally Lady Frederick Windsor, is a person of exceptional creativity, talent and artistic sensitivity who is the perfect ambassador of the Biennale; a celebration of contemporary art showcasing the works of 120 artists representing 40 nations.
London is the global art capital and the London Art Biennale is where the contemporary art of the world is presented. Previous editions of the Biennale gathered artworks from all over the world, showcasing artists who have exhibited in some of the most important international museums as well as emerging artists selected for their talent.
The Biennale takes place on the King's Road, Chelsea, where artists such as Augustus John and Alma Tadema established 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, London.
