London Art Biennale 2023

The London Art Biennale presents over 350 talented artists from all around the world, emerging and established, in a celebration of contemporary art. The exhibition takes place on the historic King’s Road in Chelsea, and is a museum-quality award show, professionally curated to induce a stimulating, varied yet coherent experience for the viewer. Previous editions of the Biennale gathered artworks from approximately 50 different nations showcasing artists who have exhibited in some of the most important museums in the world as well as emerging artists selected for their talent. The exhibition spans across many artistic movements, styles, traditions and lines of thought all brought together in the iconic Chelsea Old Town Hall.

The 6th edition of the London Art Biennale is taking place in July 2023. The Official inauguration is by invitation only and the exhibition is open to the general public, free entry, from the 24th until the 30th of July 2023.

Artists have the chance to win numerous awards including monetary prizes totalling £11,000 GBP as well as the wide range of awards that also include the opportunity for an artist’s work to be professionally critiqued by the International Confederation of Art Critics.

Throughout the years, the Biennale has committed significant efforts to charity. Original artworks by Andy Warhol, Pietro Annigoni, Jose Van Roy Dali, and a Fiat 500 have been donated with 100% of proceeds gifted to various charitable organisations such as the Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” Charity, the Salvation Army, London’s Air Ambulance, and Age UK.


The London Art Biennale award exhibition is an exciting event for art lovers, collectors, professionals, and critics to gather and celebrate contemporary art.
