-- 2013 is an exciting year for contemporary art as London confirms itself as a centre and magnet for global creativity. Josè Dalì will be the ideal ambassador for the 130 artists selected from all around the world by international museum and gallery professionals - artworks from China to Brazil and from the USA to Iran.
The exhibition will take place on the King’s Road, London, at the Chelsea Old Town Hall designed by John Brydon in 1885 and will gather prominent artists such as Agita Keiri from Latvia who was selected for the BP Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London and 5 year old Aelita Andre from Australia - the most famous child prodigy in the art world who has received media coverage from the BBC, CBS and Sky news to name a few.
The Town Hall offers an elegant Victorian setting with original artworks depicting historical characters associated with Chelsea, an ornate vaulted ceiling, brass chandeliers and mahogany paneled walls - a stark contrast to the works that have been selected in this celebration of contemporary art.
Admittance to the exhibition is free to the public and during the show there will be a charity auction including the sale of an artwork by Josè Dalì. All proceeds will go to the Rotary Club’s “End Polio” Charity and the Salvation Army Charity.
The London Biennale 2013 is an exciting museum quality exhibition that promises to shed light on contemporary art from different cultures and continents - a must see exhibition that allows for the comparison of different ideas, thoughts and beliefs expressed in the one form, art.
