Eye of the Collector at Chelsea Barracks

Eye of the Collector, the London fair that offers a curated presentation of art and collectible design, announces the highlight exhibitors and artworks for its 2024 edition. Taking place in a new venue at the beautiful Grade II listed Garrison Chapel at the Chelsea Barracks between 26th-29th June 2024, the fair offers a unique environment in which to appreciate and acquire works by both emerging and established 20th and 21st century artists and designers.


This edition will have a stronger focus on international art and artists and will see the fair collaborate with new galleries for the first time, as well as continuing long-standing partnerships with previous exhibitors.

Nazy Vassegh, Founder and CEO of Eye of the Collector, said: “From the outset we wanted Eye of the Collector to be a successful, creative art platform for galleries, artists, and designers, and one that collectors look forward to and have a strong affinity with. To that end we are bringing a fresh, new perspective to our fourth edition and are delighted to curate a selection of works at our new home, the Garrison Chapel in the Chelsea Barracks.

“As well as having a broad spectrum of C20th and Contemporary British art, this year’s edition also places a greater emphasis on international art, with participating galleries from Europe, the Middle East and Asia for the first time.”
