In January 2017 the art world tragically lost a prodigious, prolific talent and much loved friend in Francesca Lowe. Fran’s sudden passing shocked all who knew her and deeply affected a generation of artists and peers. Generosity, wit, ambitious determination, and a unique and complex vision established Fran at the heart of a community of artists who miss her terribly. Fran leaves behind her husband, the artist Gavin Nolan, and their four-year-old son Uli.
In Memoriam brings together a wide and influential group of contemporary artists in celebration of Fran’s life and art. The exhibition consists of 60 leading artists – from the most exciting emerging talent to the prominent and established. A two week online auction will culminate in a one day closing exhibition on 8 November 2017 in a 10,500-square foot space at the Old Truman Brewery in east London’s Brick Lane.
All proceeds will go to the Nolan Lowe family
In Memoriam is organised by Zavier Ellis (gallery director (CHARLIE SMITH LONDON), curator (including THE FUTURE CAN WAIT), publisher, collector); Simon Rumley (curator (including THE FUTURE CAN WAIT), film director, collector); Kiera Bennett, Reece Jones and Alex Gene Morrison (artists and co-founders of The Rockwell Project).
