Art

The contemporary art world is animated by voices from around the globe and the club is building an international collection, exhibition and events programme that reflects these diverse voices and provides a space for the ideas of a new generation to thrive.

The vision for The Arts Club’s collection stems, in many ways, from its history. When the club was founded by such luminaries as Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope, with members including Auguste Rodin and James Whistler, it was a place where writers, artists and intellectuals met to discuss the cutting edge ideas of their time. Our current collection and programming is designed to reflect their progressive attitudes and ideas, as we continue the conversation started over 150 years ago.

From the club’s permanent collection, to the individual artworks featured throughout the hotel, our exhibitions and events; members are invited to immerse themselves in the club’s art culture. Throughout the year we welcome guest speakers, visit galleries, fairs and artist studios in London and beyond, including Cromwell Place, the Affordable Art Fair, 1-54, Photo London and Frieze. We partner with established art media, institutions and industry experts, to provide a comprehensive insight into the art world, with The Arts Club Prize awarded annually to an artist under 35, exhibited in the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition.
