Wednesday 22nd - Sunday 26th May 2019
Private View by Invitation only: 22nd May 2019
Exhibition to be opened by Lady Sophie Windsor
The London Art Biennale 2019 is honoured by Lady Sophie Windsor who will graciously inaugurate the exhibition and open the vernissage on the 22nd May. 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.
Charity Raffle - Prizes to include a CITY CAR!

Charity is always an important part of the Biennale and Lady Sophie will be the ideal patron to help raise awareness for the Charity raffle held during the opening in which fashions items from international designers such as Emporio Armani, Versace, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors can be won. The main prizes will be a new city car and a Tuscan holiday.
The selected chartities for the 2019 edition will be Age UK and the Rotary Club. Raffle tickets can be purchased prior to the Biennale and during the Private View directly from the charities. 100% of raffle ticket sales go to charity as the prizes are donated or purchased by the London Art Biennale.

The venue offers a prominent and elegant Victorian setting with an ornate vaulted ceiling, brass chandeliers and mahogany panelled walls; a magnificent bow-fronted stage with stairs curving 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 the fabulous collection of contemporary art gathered by the Biennnale.
