Sartorial Contemporary Art is an artist-run gallery founded in 2005 by Gretta Sarfaty Marchant, artist and curator, as a project-led space in central London, England.[1] Originally based in an 18th-century Georgian house on Kensington Church Street. Sartorial Contemporary Art moved to Kings Cross in October 2008 where it has built a reputation for embracing newly emerging artists.
Following The Guardian observation about the Harry Pye exhibition, Me,me,me, the gallery space has achieved maturity and it has become a real space within the artistic circuit.[2] Sartorial Contemporary Art in house publication The Rebel magazine started in 2005, in collaboration with Harry Pye is released four times a year, usually connected with a current exhibition theme. Since 2005, Pye has written a column about the London art scene for the Estonian newspaper, Epifanio as well as being the editor of The Rebel magazine.
