London Studio Tour
A Unique Experience
Will Lunn organised his first exhibition, including two internationally renowned artists, aged just seventeen. He has previously worked at a number of London galleries, before he set up Sumarria Lunn Gallery with Vishal Sumarria at twenty. After Sumarria Lunn, at twenty-five he opened Copperfield, an independent contemporary art gallery just south of Tate Modern. He is a graduate of the Courtauld Institute of Art and prior to becoming a curator and gallerist, he has been exhibited both in England and abroad as an artist working under another name. He sees his work as a curator as an extension of that practice - bringing pre-existing objects with pre-existing concepts together in a space to create new meaning.
For the last three years I have been running an artist agency representing young contemporary artists and curating pop-up exhibitions around London. I currently represent twenty artists all who practice in varying mediums. I also run a project space in the Isle of Wight that invites artists to make site specific immersive installations. I have an art historical background having graduated from Goldsmiths with a First Class degree in Visual Culture in 2015. I also studied Art Business and Foundations of Western Art at Sothebys Institute in 2011-2012. Following on from university, I worked in art galleries in London and New York and have experience in all areas of exhibiting artwork. This tour will give you a diverse insight into the London art scene from artist’s studio to large contemporary art gallery.
