Contacts & Details
Richard Saltoun Gallery has been at the forefront of reintroducing and promoting the work of exceptional artists from the 1970s such as Helen Chadwick, Bob Law, and Jo Spence. These and other important artists from the period feature in the gallery’s exhibition programme.
Until relatively recently, many of these innovative and experimental artists were largely ignored by collectors and museums. Richard Saltoun has worked with and exhibited leading Feminist artists including Renate Bertlmann, Helen Chadwick, Rose English, Alexis Hunter, Valie Export, Friedl Kubelka, Gina Pane, Carolee Schneemann and Jo Spence, all of whom used their art to express and reflect the social turbulence of the times.
Through exhibiting the work of the these artists and many others, Richard Saltoun gallery has provided a unique and often unexpected perspective on contemporary art history. In conjunction with Ridinghouse, they have produced and published a number of monographs on leading British artists.
