In the past century, humankind has witnessed unprecedented innovation and transformation- from towering skyscrapers to moon landings, from the rise of social media to the evolution of human rights. But what about Art?


In our fast-paced society, where time feels increasingly scarce, artists face an ever more challenging path. The relentless pace of change demands a state of constant transcendence, a theme profoundly echoed in contemporary art.


This exhibition aims to explore into these trends in contemporary art, fostering a dialogue between artists and viewers. We invite you to join us in this exploration, where the pulse of today’s art world meets the timeless human quest for meaning.


Gallery Space


Our gallery is located in the vibrant heart of the iconic Tower Bridge area in London. An elegant blend of historical richness and modern energy, our space serves as an extraordinary platform for artists and audiences alike.


Also: Boomer Gallery is proud to be among the 4,000 global art galleries featured on Artsy, the world’s largest community of art collectors.

An exhibition with us is more than just presence in a famous location and the potential for sales, it’s a doorway to the world.
