“We might at first think that Fitzpatrick’s work stems from these interactions with British iconography as a youth, seeing the male figure held in regard within the narrative of Empire, and how power was, and still is, visualised and portrayed. Instead, it was the similarity in everything except wealth and lifestyle that made his younger self more conscious of the divide.”
Jamie Fitzpatrick’s solo show ‘He He He He’ at Contemporary Forward in Touchstones Rochdale, UK, has been reviewed in this is tomorrow. Read more here

VITRINE is delighted to announce representation of Milly Peck. Milly Peck (b. 1990, London, UK) is a British artist working across painting, sculpture and installation. Working at the slip between two and three-dimensions, Peck uses a modest colour palette creating cartoonish imagery to depict slapstick yet mundane scenes drawn from the everyday and domestic environment.
VITRINE will be presenting Peck’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland and with the gallery at VITRINE Basel, UK, in June 2020.

“What’s the opposite of nostalgia? I ask that question because Tim Etchell’s stories take me back to a time and place I thought I’d forgotten – but I really wouldn’t want to go back there.”

As a founding gallery, with over a year in development and an exclusive in FT Weekend, we are delighted to announce a new project Performance Exchange. Happening in July 2020 – with Director Rose Lejeune and partner founding galleries ARCADE, Seventeen and VITRINE – Performance Exchange is a dispersed performance project across commercial galleries in London, some of which will also be hosting performances from international galleries.
Highlighting the work done by commercial galleries to support multi-disciplinary and performance practice, Performance Exchange will create new forms of support for collecting performance art through a three day programme of presentations combined with detailed acquisition information for each work on an innovative digital platform. It will also create cross-sector dialogue on expanding collections through an Acquisitions Fund which will support three UK regional museums to each collect a new work.
VITRINE will present Tim Etchells in the first edition of Performance Exchange (July 2020)
