Andrew Salgado: Harvey Nichols

Andrew Salgado Exclusive Private Viewing of Harvey Nichols Newly Commissioned Works

On Sunday, 24th March 2013, Beers.Lambert Contemporary will be debuting 6 new large-scale paintings commissioned by the luxurious retailer Harvey Nichols by artist Andrew Salgado for one day only.  These works will then be exhibited in the store-front windows of Harvey Nichols at their Sloane Street location in Knightsbridge for 11-weeks commencing 30th March 2013.

This is a unique opportunity to view Salgado’s newest (and largest) works.  In the past Salgado’s paintings have hung alongside works by Tracey Emin and Gary Hume at the Courtauld Institute in London, and in 2011 Salgado’s donated piece to Canada’s esteemed Art For Life Charity auction in Vancouver received the highest-grossing bid in the charity’s 18-year history. In 2012 Salgado was featured in the Channel 4 (UK) documentary What Makes a Masterpiece, alongside artists like Anish Kapoor, Howard Hodgkins, and Bridget Riley.  His bold, assertive, and generally large-scale figurative paintings have placed him as one-to-watch as recently stated by Will Ramsay, Founder of the Affordable Art Fair, in the February 26th edition of the Metro

Salgado has exhibited in the United Kingdom, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia, Venezuela, Thailand, Korea, South Africa, Canada, and the United States. Forthcoming solo exhibitions include The Smallest Heart’s Desire, La Petite Mort Gallery, Ottawa, Canada (May 2013) and The Acquaintance, his first institution-exhibition at The Art Gallery of Regina (October 2013). In 2014, Salgado has confirmed solo shows at Christopher Møller Art, Cape Town (January); One Art Space, New York City, NY (May); and Beers.Lambert Contemporary, London UK, (October).

Beers.Lambert Contemporary is proud to be the first to present this body of new paintings commissioned by Harvey Nichols at an exclusive, invite only, champagne reception on the afternoon of Sunday the 24th from 1-4pm.  For further information and/or if you wish to attend kindly RSVP to info@beerslambert.com.  *Note: All works will be available for acquisition.
