Winter Salon is a new yearly event at the Laurent Delaye Gallery in Ramsgate. This year it will take place at the Vinyl Head Gallery in Addington Street, from 4 to 29 November 2020.
There was a time when public Art exhibitions came to change the course of history, and the 19C had plenty of them. As Victorian Ramsgate was basking in the glory of prestige and elegance, monocles in London were dropping at the daringness of the new moderns, while in France the art of the next century was made amid riots and editorial calls for arson. In this spirit, and in view of the present circumstances, we think it really is time for the opening of a Winter Salon in Ramsgate. Starting small, and in one venue, we anticipate that by the next years to come, the whole town will be the stage of an art revolution spreading like fire.
For its first edition the gallery will bring together twelve artists. Coming from all different horizons and practice, working with multiple media, and often with an already established international career, they encompass diverse schools of thoughts and traditions within the realm of contemporary art. In the narrow but open space of the Vinyl Head Gallery the curators are aiming for chaos and order, opposites, clashes, anarchy, where each work interplays with others and defines its own boundaries. The show reflects the longstanding interest of the gallery for constructivism, Op Art, minimalism, feminism, surrealism, Dada, political satire, and concrete poetry. It includes sculpture, painting, photography, prints, collage, calligraphy, ceramics, tapestry, and posters.
