Set in the heart of London's Fitzrovia, Lazarides Rathbone exhibits many of the most significant artists thriving outside the conventional contemporary art market. While Lazarides is considered the international market leader in what is dubbed urban art, many of the contemporary artists on display defy categorisation. Since being founded in 2006 Lazarides has been a constant force in championing the careers of artists who have transformed the way art is made and presented. These include a generation of pioneering street artists such as Mode 2, Invader and Todd James alongside influential British portrait artists Jonathan Yeo and Antony Micallef.
Since its inception Lazarides Rathbone has hosted a variety of prolific exhibitions spanning both the ground and first floor levels, including JR's global Inside Out initiative and 3D's major retrospective of Massive Attack visual history. The gallery is involved in extensive off-site activity, incorporating one-off shows in New York and Los Angeles as well as art fairs and museum collaborations across London and Europe.
Recent out-of-gallery highlights include Conor Harrington's New York solo debut Eat and Delete, Sotheby's Unauthorised Banksy Retrospective and multi-disciplinary group showcase BRUTAL at 180 The Strand.
