New contemporary art gallery revitalises corner of nassau and riding house street

The Josh Lilley gallery is now open at 44-46 Riding House Street after a change of planning use was secured and letting agreed by Dowd & Company on behalf of the landlord.

Fitzrovia is fast becoming a new art district with dealers attracted by its location (tucked between the busy Euston Road to the north and Oxford Street to the south), lower rents and fashionable image.
Traditionally Fitzrovia has been the home of the rag trade but now seems to be colonised by cutting edge contemporary galleries. Those now proud to be Fitzrovians include the Stuart Shave and Pilar Corrias Galleries on Eastcastle Street, the Alison Jacques Gallery in Berners Street, Mummery & Schnelle on Great Titchfield Street and Lazarides on Rathbone Place.

Dowd & Company is now looking to acquire a further gallery and has recently let space, on a short term basis, to the Dutch Embassy to show their contemporary art collection.
With the annual October Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park - a showcase for new and established artists from around the world - the area is certainly on the map as a new contemporary arts destination
