Founded in 2010 The Horsebox Gallery is the first contemporary mobile art gallery & consultancy. Bringing people together who wouldn’t normally meet, and putting people in front of art they wouldn’t usually see in some of London's most unqiue spaces. The Horsebox Gallery promotes the idea that traditional, representative art, and modern, conceptual, art are worthy of equal respect, on their merits. "We bring both strands of work together, to delight and inform. We are a social and commercial enterprise promoting some of the worlds leading esblished and emerging contemporary art. People come to buy art, others to listen and talk about it."
Throughout the year The Horsebox Gallery partners with London’s leading galleries, museums and private establishments exhibiting their portfolio of established and emerging artists; from the decorative and glamorous through to the challenging and uncomfortable.
AnOther Magazine: “Each exhibition put on by The Horsebox Gallery is positioned in a location synonymous with the project in hand. And this one is no different.”
The Mobile Summer Gallery
In the summer, The Horsebox Gallery tours in a self converted horsebox/art gallery to the UK’s leading country events with work which often brings a degree of edginess to rural and sporting themes. Associates include: Goodwood Estate, Guards Polo Club, Ebor Festival & Ascot Racecourse. The Horsebox Gallery has featured on Channel 4 Morning Line. Former champion jockey Richard Dunwoody observes. “The Horsebox Gallery embraces, passion for the countryside in its style, subject matter, ruggedness, glamour and most importantly the quality of the art that it represents”.
