Since 2010, Beers has worked with emerging and established artists to explore a diverse exhibition programme dedicated to thematic, aesthetic, and political concepts, highlighting an approach to contemporary art that is both progressive and thought-provoking. Through continued collaboration with artists and organizations, the goal of Beers continues to strive to celebrate, share and exhibit contemporary art in London and worldwide.
The gallery upholds an active international art fair schedule, which includes the participation in esteemed fairs such as Artissima in Torino, Italy; Zona Maco in Mexico City along with others in New York, Miami and Basel (Switzerland). In autumn 2014, Director Kurt Beers authored 100 Painters of Tomorrow, published by Thames & Hudson, which was adjudicated by a panel of prominent figures in the arts in search of some of the world’s most exciting emerging painters working today. In summer 2015, artist Andrew Salgado guest curated ‘The Fantasy of Representation’, including work by Francis Bacon, Gary Hume, and Hurvin Anderson. Beers London’s open exhibition, Contemporary Visions, currently in its seventh year, has garnered a reputation for exhibiting some of the most exciting emerging and mid-career artists found internationally.
