The Wilmotte Gallery at Lichfield Studios
Opening hours during exhibitions:
|Located in London's Notting Hill district, the Wilmotte Gallery At Lichfield Studios is an art gallery managed, since 2009, by Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Tristan Hoare, a young British art curator. The two work closely together to organise exhibitions focussing primarily on contemporary photography.
Formerly a car garage, the building was bought in 1984 by Lord Lichfield, one of the greatest photographers of his generation and official portraitist to the British royal family; Lichfield used the garage as his studio. The building was entirely renovated by Wilmotte UK, who added a level for their own offices and created an exhibition space on the ground floor, all while retaining a sense of the space's “workshop” spirit.
