Founded in 2009, Tristan Hoare is a multi-layered gallery focusing on young and established artists working in a variety of mediums. African photography, glass, painting and drawing are all areas of interest, as well as a developing passion for ceramics.
Each year the gallery curates an ambitious exhibition with an overarching theme. Geometrica (2018), Botanica (2019), Folds (2021) and The Conference of the Birds (2022) enabled Tristan Hoare to collaborate with multiple artists and galleries, combining work from BC to the present day. Exhibitions are executed with the intention of telling a story and connecting with both seasoned collectors and people less familiar with the art world.
During Frieze Masters 2022, the gallery booth will present a series of early works by celebrated French-Vietnamese illustrator, Pierre Le-Tan. Meanwhile, visitors can visit the gallery's main space in Fitzroy Square to see Confluence, a dialogue exhibition of glass sculptures by Japanese artist Ritsue Mishima, in conversation with expressive botanical paintings by Italian artist Alessandro Twombly. Like the confluence of a river, the exhibition brings together two artists whose differing modes of expression nonetheless have a common point of departure — energy, movement and the natural world around them. This will be the first time the gallery has exhibited a group of Ritsue Mishima’s sculptures and is our second exhibition with Alessandro Twombly, the first being Equinox, a solo show in September 2020.
The gallery is located in a Grade I listed Georgian house in Fitzroy Square and is open Tuesday to Saturday.
