The Arts Club has announced a group exhibition bringing together the gallery community of Dover and Grafton Streets.

From July 4 to October 3, Block Party will see galleries including Cardi Gallery, Gazelli Art House, Galerie Max Hetzler, Sprüth Magers, Richard Saltoun, Robilant + Voena, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac and David Zwirner showcase an artwork from its roster of artists including: Lucio Fontana, Paolo Scheggi, Rose Wylie, Helen Chadwick, Louise Bonnet, Giovanni Ozzola, Gary Hume, Jack Pierson and Mimmo Rotella.

The collaboration celebrates the area’s longstanding arts community and the creativity of the artists it represents, after the COVID-19 lockdown has forced galleries to close and temporarily move their business online.

The Arts Club will re-open on July 4, adhering to social distancing guidelines and safety measures; the club is also encouraging art lovers to schedule visits with galleries on the street, who have also taken precautions to re-open safely.

This exhibition is curated by Amelie von Wedel, Pernilla Holmes and Jessica Ziskind of Wedel Art.

Members can view the exhibition throughout the week; the public can visit The Arts Club by appointment, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10am to 12pm.
