Art is good for the soul. It makes you look, think, imagine. Art takes you to new places, offers fresh perspectives, raises questions. It makes you feel. As part of this ethos, every space at 45 Park Lane is a potent, living canvas for a collection of art by contemporary British artists. We invite you to explore them at your leisure, to find yourself, to lose yourself.

Our current exhibition

Zhuang Hong Yi
October 15, 2019 – January 27, 2020

Zhuang Hong Yi

As one of China’s most influential contemporary artists, Zhuang Hong Yi is famous for his daring colour palettes. For his latest ‘Flowerbed’ series he pairs these vivid tones with striking origami rice paper flowers, inspired by the Chinese symbolism for growth, fulfilment, prosperity and good chi. Discover the three-dimensional canvases at 45 Park Lane, and see our lobby and BAR 45 area is transformed into a colourful oasis of flowers.

Upcoming exhibitions

JANUARY 29 – APRIL 27, 2020

Kirk Mechar and Rakerman – Surface

Two visionary artists, one exciting collaboration. To begin the new year, we welcome international artists Kirk Mechar and Rakerman, whose contemporary works are brought together for an impressive exhibition at the hotel. The eye-catching collection unites Mechar’s abstract floral-inspired works and Rakerman’s complex pieces which play with the idea of the visible and invisible. The result is an intriguing multi-dimensional space and a journey through shape, texture and tone.

Kirk Mechar and Rakerman – Surface
Terry O'Neill, Andy Gotts MBE and Douglas Kirkland – FAME
APRIL 29 – JUNE 22, 2020

Terry O'Neill, Andy Gotts MBE and Douglas Kirkland – FAME

FAME showcases 30 rare and unseen celebrity portraits captured over a span of 40 years by renowned photographers Terry O’Neill, Doug Kirkland and Andy Gotts MBE. Their shared passion for capturing rare, off-screen moments in the lives of the stars is beautifully curated in this new exhibition, featuring Kate Moss, Marilyn Monroe, Harrison Ford and more. In association with Ackerman Studios.

JUNE 24 – AUGUST 23, 2020

Jacky Tsai

Unit London presents Jacky Tsai, a contemporary artist who places cultural fusion at the heart of his practice. The artist innovatively blends Chinese craft tradition – lacquer carving, painted porcelain, silk embroidery and guohua painting – with western pop iconography. Through an imaginative use of perspective, Tsai creates a series of rich narratives which we’re delighted to share at 45 Park Lane.

Art - A living ethos at 45 Park Lane

Art is our landscape. The hotel is a living gallery of exciting and groundbreaking British art.

Staff quote
“As well as being a stylish harbour and providing exquisite service, a luxury hotel should provide guests with an inspiring and intriguing environment which we achieve through our constantly evolving art programme. It is always exciting to think we may be exhibiting the next Hockney or Hirst, but above all we show what we find interesting, and what we think our guests will enjoy seeing.”

John Scanlon General Manager, 45 Park Lane
