LONDON + BASEL
15 Bermondsey Square
VITRINE was founded by Alys Williams in London in 2012, and in Basel in April 2016. The Gallery is focused on artistic experimentation and development; material-, process- and installation-led practice at its core. Establishing a strong reputation as a selector and nurturer of new talent, VITRINE invites and fosters the development and presentation of new work in spaces in London and Basel- at both Art Fairs internationally and through off-site projects in collaboration with partner organizations. VITRINE nurtures a rigorous commitment to artist development and represents a growing number of International Artists: Nadim Abbas, Edwin Burdis, Tim Etchells, Jamie Fitzpatrick, Clare Kenny, Wil Murray, Sam Porritt, Maya Rochat and Charlie Godet Thomas; alongside further exhibited and associated International Artists.
