Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 25th edition of Artist of the Day, a landmark programme started by Angela and Matthew Flowers in 1983. This year, the fast-paced, revolving two-week show schedule features 10 UK-based artists, each presenting a one-day solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery’s Mayfair location, supported by their artist selector.

Over the years, the unconventional exhibition concept has cemented Artist of the Day as a vital platform that highlights artists supporting artists. This series has often nurtured rising talent and has seen the start of the careers of some of the UK’s most celebrated contemporary artists, including Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Juno Calypso, Billy Childish, Adam Dant, Dexter Dalwood, Nicola Hicks, and Anthony Daley, the very first artist of the day in 1983.

The exhibitions will be accompanied by weekly group shows of all the week’s artists and a two-week-long installation in the Lower Gallery featuring past Artist of the Day artists including Sokari Douglas Camp, Cathy de Monchaux, Nancy Fouts, Lucy Jones, and David Robilliard.
