Jennifer Lauren Gallery
Established early 2017, the Jennifer Lauren Gallery is run solely by Jennifer Lauren Gilbert, an independent gallerist, curator, and producer with over fourteen years' experience working within this sector. The aim of the Jennifer Lauren Gallery is to champion, advocate for, empower and exhibit disabled, neurodivergent, learning disabled, self-taught and overlooked artists from across the globe, showcasing undiscovered talents and evolving artists, as well as internationally recognised artists. Jennifer works closely with UK organisations, studios and communities supporting disabled artists and is passionate about being a voice and platform for these under-represented artists, promoting their artworks to wider audiences, allowing their true artistic language to shine.
The Gallery organises pop-up exhibitions and events such as artist talks and artist-led workshops, both online and in-person, as well as taking part in art fairs internationally. Alongside this, the Gallery provides consultancy and a solutions-focussed approach to large visual arts galleries and museums around the UK, to support working with this group of artists. Through her work Jennifer hopes to: demystify what is regarded as art and who can be an artist; stimulate audiences; re-look at how work is displayed and written about within contemporary art, and by art critics; and to continue to challenge the stigma surrounding this field of art thereby ensuring that the art is the main focus, and not the biographies.
