Gallery Libby Sellers was established by the former curator of London’s Design Museum in 2007 to support and promote contemporary design in a gallery context. Commissioning new works and curating a program of evolving selling exhibitions, the gallery has earned a reputation for its critical and concept-led agenda. Recent selling exhibitions have included: The Copper Mirror Series by Hunting & Narud, installations by Anton Alvarez of his Thread Wrapping Machine designs; a solo show of glass designer Paola Petrobelli; a psychogeography-inspired series of works by London-based Clarke & Reilly; the Craftica series of works with FENDI by Italian designers Formafantasma; and the ongoing touring exhibition of the works of legendary British graphic designer Richard Hollis.
