Hang-Up is pleased to announce the opening of its new purpose-built London gallery on
the Regent's Canal in Hoxton. Offering nearly 2000sq ft of contemporary space, 5-metre high ceilings with an abundance of natural light, the new gallery will open on Thursday 28th November with a dynamic group exhibition showcasing Hang- Up's roster of primary and secondary market artists including Mark Powell, Magnus Gjoen, Delphine Lebourgeois, Nancy Fouts, Marc Quinn, KAWS, Harland Miller.
Moving from its original Dalston space to the striking new waterfront location in Hoxton, the building has been completely stripped back, dug out and remodelled over an eight-month period. It is now a sharp, purpose-built contemporary gallery space with bold architectural floor to ceiling doors and polished concrete floors.
The new space will enable Hang-Up to present much larger scale exhibitions.
Owner Ben Cotton says, "We are increasingly focused on showing original works and paintings, both in secondary and primary markets. And now we have a bigger space, for bigger shows."
Highlights of the launch exhibition include a rare grey artist's proof of Banksy's Morons, the latest signed, numbered colour etching by Grayson Perry, a print release from
The Connor Brothers and new paintings from Dave White and Tim Fishlock alongside new work from Joe Webb and Nina Saunders.
Established in 2008, Hang-Up was highlighted as one of the 'Five Places to Visit in London' by The New York Times in 2019. The gallery has built a considerable international following over the past decade, propelled by its friendly and approachable ethos.
