Linden Hall Studio at
14 February – 22 March 2018
The London Deal brings together a group of contemporary artists to create a unique show that compliments the space perfectly.”
– Myles Corley, Gallery Director, Linden Hall Studio.
“I am delighted to welcome Linden Hall Studio as the first professional art gallery to exhibit at The Building Centre. Contemporary art has always been a personal passion of mine and Linden Hall Studio has created its own special place in the art world in a very short time. Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury have always been synonymous with art and architecture and Linden Hall Studio is therefore an excellent addition to this creative area.”
– Colin Tweedy, Chief Executive, The Building Centre.
Established in 2014, the ethos of the gallery was always to bring the very best of contemporary British Art to the English coast. With over the 31 exhibitions, and a multitude of visitors ; the gallery is delighted and extremely proud to be able to continue achieving and expanding upon this original aim.
The gallery’s location is important to its charm. Just over an hour on the fast train from central London whilst at the same time, being a mere stones throw from the English Channel. One cannot pass through this little patch of England, it is a location, a destination one most decide to head toward.
Yet the draw of this special patch of shoreline has always been able to seduce creatives toward it. Turner twinkled at the seascape, Wilde, walked the promenade, Fleming gripped his pen, Coward grabbed a glass. Different timezones, different periods, different modes of self expression. Yet still they came. It seemed that the environment that Deal oozes, could offer something that nowhere else quite could. At Linden Hall Studio, it means very much to us that we are able to continue this cultural legacy – by bringing the very best of contemporary art, to this creative area of the world.

The London Group was set up in 1913 by thirty two artists including Robert Bevan, Henri Gaudier Brzeska, Jacob Epstein, Duncan Grant, Annie Hudson, Wyndham Lewis, Lucien Pissarro, Ethel Sands and Walter Sickert, with the aim of creating a powerful artist-run group to act as a counter-balance to institutions such as the Royal Academy. The founding group created a unique structure for an organisation, that has gone on to successfully nurture the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists.
The London Group is a thriving democratic artists’ collective practicing in all disciplines, from painting and sculpture to moving image, digital and performance, with a full annual events programme in London and beyond.
The Group’s written constitution requires it “to advance public awareness of contemporary visual art by holding exhibitions annually.” Operating in the interstices between existing art institutions, the Group’s focus today is on self-generated exhibitions. Curated and managed by its artist members, these events aim to offer a serious and alternative perspective to contemporary visual arts in Britain.
