Contemporary art gallery Carroll / Fletcher Gallery, co-founded by Jonathon Carroll and Steve Fletcher, has located its new 4,000 sq ft gallery to 56/57 Eastcastle Street, following a comprehensive refurbishment.
With 8 galleries now open on Eastcastle Street, we are seeing a thriving art scene in this quarter of the West End in the very heart of The Langham Estate. This is truly an art movement, in which we anticipate more galleries coming to the area during the course of the year.
Carroll / Fletcher Gallery supports existing and new forms of artistic production, and works with exceptional emerging and established artists, whose practices use a diverse range of media to explore contemporary socio-political, cultural, scientific and technological themes.
The gallery presents seven solo exhibitions a year, from retrospectives and surveys to exhibitions focused on a particular aspect of an artist’s practice and new commissions. Each exhibition offers alternative frameworks for understanding, interpreting and contextualising an artist’s work. This includes exhibition publications with commissioned essays, and talks, panel discussions, performances, screenings and other events.
Carroll / Fletcher showcases developments in visual culture by commissioning and exhibiting ambitious new works. It collaborates with museums and other non-commercial institutions to develop interest in and long-term critical appreciation of the work of its artists. The gallery also presents curated group shows, occasional location specific works and collaborative education projects.
