About the event

An exciting re-launch sees the trendy Curious Duke Gallery grow in size and establish its own framing company. When Eleni Duke first opened in 2011, her gallery was only intended to be a short-term pop-up but her unique concept proved so successful that ‘the Duchess of Whitecross Street’ went on to create a permanent ‘anti-gallery’ - London’s only art space to specialise in affordable urban and contemporary works.

Duke was the youngest gallerist in London when she founded her pop-up space. She has since grown her business to great acclaim with her female team winning second place in Smarta 100 Micro Business Awards 2013. Duke is a judge for the all-female Femme Fierce street art competition and her constant search for talent has led Curious Duke Gallery to launch its very own competition - The Secret Art Prize – which returns in March 2017.

Having cemented its position on the UK art scene championing surreal and urban artwork, Curious Duke Gallery now represents around 100 emerging and mid-career artists from a variety of different genres all of whom have a constantly developing unique portfolio and real gumption! Curious Duke Gallery’s artists use obscure methods ranging from laser-cut vintage saws depicting childhood scenes, to Bic Biro drawings on antique documents and bright mixed-media paintings of Native American inspired women.

Eleni Duke comments, We are so excited to be launching our new space and sister company Curious Duke Framing. Our new gallery space includes ‘The Den’ showcasing our artists all year round whilst solo shows go on in the main gallery. We have an incredible calendar of events coming up in 2017 including solo shows from Louise McNaught and Roy’s People.

The gallery’s opening show is Steven Quinn’s Once upon a Tomorrow. Collage obsessed artist and street photographer Quinn likes to combine cut-outs from old magazines and historic imagery to create often apocalyptic, sometimes humorous narratives. His most current works see him domesticise ideas based on nuclear, political and intergalactic conflicts.
