Curated by Lily Ackerman from Ackerman Studios, in collaboration with 45 Park Lane, the programme will showcase works ranging from abstract painter Nat Bowen to award-winning portrait artist Curtis Holder. The series will also feature a retrospective of some of 45 Park Lane’s most popular exhibitions, marking the 10th anniversary of the hotel, featuring Lhouette, Benjamin Shine, Ewan David Eason and Raul Castillo.

In summer, 45 Park Lane will pay homage to one of London’s pre-eminent drinking clubs, ‘The Colony Room Club’, by exhibiting artwork by regulars to the popular hangout including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach. A secret pop-up bar in a hidden part of 45 Park Lane will be launched to replicate the Colony Rooms, where guests can sip cocktails and converse surrounded by the famed artwork.

45 Park Lane has provided a canvas for emerging and established artists since opening in 2011. Sir Peter Blake, Bruce McLean, Patrick Hughes, Joe Tilson and Jill Berelowitz are some of the artists whose work is displayed across the guest floors, and Damien Hirsts’ Psalm series is hung throughout famed restaurant CUT at 45 Park Lane.

Speaking about the exhibitions for 2021, Lily Ackerman said: "This year’s exhibitions will delight and inspire. They are full of imagination and vibrancy, colour and emotion. It's so exciting to invite our most successful artists back as well as showcasing bold and daring new talent."

John Scanlon, general manager of 45 Park Lane, comments:For 10 years, 45 Park Lane has been a canvas for creativity, known for its invigorating blend of art and landmark architecture, providing exquisite comfort and extraordinary service. We look to provide inspiration and exciting experiences through our ever evolving dining initiatives and art programmes, and cannot wait to welcome our guests back to see our beautiful art exhibitions.”

Nat Bowen – Chromadelic

May 17 – June 28, 2021
British abstract artist, Nat Bowen, will bring light and colour into 45 Park Lane with her ‘Chromadelic’ exhibition. Installed on April 7th ready for the hotel reopening on May 17, the exhibition features both large scale works and Bowen’s smaller trademarked Fragments, the paintings incorporate pigments made according to historic recipes, such as the purest Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan, and contemporary neon pigments uniting the past and present through colour. The highlight will be ‘Pink Diamond’, painted especially for the exhibition to mark a decade since the opening of 45 Park Lane using natural rose petal pigment and genuine pink diamond dust set within 69 layers of resin.

Featuring artists Lhouette, Benjamin Shine, Ewan David Eason, Raul Castillo – A Retrospective

June 28 to August 30, 2021
This group exhibition focuses on the young talent fostered through our exhibition programme at 45 Park Lane. Bringing together our most outstanding alumni and showcasing them in a mixed exhibition, expect dynamism and large scale works from some of the most promising emerging artists today.

The Colony Rooms pop-up

August to November 2021
The new exhibition brought to 45 Park Lane by Dellasposa, pays homage to the ambience of the infamous Colony Room in London. Once known for attracting the most important artists from Post-War Britain - including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and the younger, contemporary artists who followed in their wake - the intimacy of the club enjoys a unique place in art history for being a safe haven for creatives and fostering an artistic community across disciplines.
A pop-up Colony Rooms bar experience within a secret corner of 45 Park Lane will allow guests the opportunity to sip cocktails and converse surrounded by famed art work.

Curtis Holder

November 3, 2021 – January 24, 2022
Drawing inspiration from the history and heritage of our hotel, Holder’s exhibition tells stories of the lost, silent moments after the party has ended while musing on the works of 20th-century artists such as Leyendecker and Michael Leonard.

Holder is an emerging artist and the winner of Sky Arts Portrait of the Year 2020. His winner’s commission of world-renowned ballet dancer Carlos Acosta hangs as part of the permanent collection at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery UK.
