England & Co, founded 1987, has established an independent, historically aware identity. This reflects the research-based curatorial approach of gallery director/curator, art historian Jane England.
The gallery programme explores 20th and 21st-century art history, together with recent projects exploring the avant-garde of the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
Exhibitions have reappraised significant artists, leading directly to museum acquisitions and renewed curatorial attention. Other exhibitions are in the vanguard of revisiting moments in 20th-century British art history. Many exhibitions incorporate photography related to conceptual process or documenting performance.
England & Co has a long and extensive history of sales of 20th and 21st-century works to public collections in the UK and internationally, and regularly loans works to exhibitions at museums and institutions worldwide.
