Since 1983, The Showroom has been at the forefront of its field, taking risks in producing exhibitions with artists in the early stages of their careers.

Artists who have had key first solo shows at the gallery include Mona HatoumJim LambieEva RothschildSimon Starling,Rebecca WarrenClaire Barclay and, more recently, The Otolith GroupCan Altay and Emily Wardill.
To celebrate the gallery’s history and secure funds for its future, Indian artist Subodh Guptawill be preparing a special 30th Anniversary Dinner at the gallery in March. Guests will be invited to participate by joining him in the kitchen before the event. Gupta had his first UK show at The Showroom in 2004, and his is the third in a series of Artist Dinners, which have previously been hosted by Eva Rothschild (2012) and Lucky PDF (2011).
The Showroom’s exhibition programme for 2013 reflects its core interests: participation, production and research. Mark Fisher and Justin Barton‘s new audio-essay On Vanishing Land(2013) (co-commissioned with The Otolith Collective) evoking the ‘Eerie’ Suffolk landscape, will play at the gallery 6 February to 30 March. A sculptural installation from Falke Pisano’s Body In Crisis series will be on display from 1 May to 22 June. In July, Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum will use the building as a production hub for nine site-specific works in the neighbourhood. In the Autumn, print-maker Ciara Phillips will realise an open screen printing workshop and presentation space, exploring the radical histories of print.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
