Hannah Barry

27 August 2014

Hannah Barry is a leading light of the young London gallery scene. Since founding the Hannah Barry Gallery in 2008, she has been influential in pulling the locus of contemporary art in the capital away from the East End and south to Peckham. Most notably, she set up the annual ‘Bold Tendencies’ exhibition, which has drawn more than half a million visitors already to this previously unfashionable corner of the city. While a core of British artists anchor the gallery, including James Capper, last year’s Palazzo Peckham at the Venice Biennale served notice that Barry’s vision extends well beyond south-east London.
