Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art

Founded in 2004, Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is a non-profit art institution and registered educational charity that does not bear the founder’s name and operates purely for public benefit.

Every year the foundation organises four challenging and thought-provoking exhibitions by international contemporary artists working in various media, which are usually documented by an accompanying publication. The foundation also holds various artist projects and engages with the public and neighbouring community through a full programme of educational events for children, young people and adults.

Central to the Parasol unit philosophy is a pledge to support artists and their creative endeavour, an attitude which leads to lasting relationships between each exhibiting artist and the foundation. Internationally recognised for its forward-thinking exhibition programme, Parasol unit has introduced a host of international artists to London’s public and has been instrumental in launching the careers of artists such as Michaël Borremans, Yang Fudong and Charles Avery.

Thanks to an innovative model between private funding and public support one of London’s most vibrant contemporary art spaces has come to exist and thrives. Admission to all exhibitions at Parasol unit is free of charge.
