Rebecca Hossack is the Director of three internationally-renowned galleries – two in central London and one in New York.
Since its establishment in 1988, the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery has pioneered exhibitions of Aboriginal art in London, as well as curating important collections from Papua New Guinea, tribal India and the Bushmen of the Kalahari. The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery also advocates contemporary Western artists who resist the dominant trends of the art world. The gallery is renowned for discovering talent and starting trends in contemporary art.
We are so excited to display some of the incredible works from the gallery throughout My Bloomsbury. You can view the collection here.
Following degrees in Law and in History of Art, Hossack studied at Christie‘s and at The Guggenheim in Venice. She served as the Australian cultural attaché in London from 1993-7, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London. She sits on the board of LAPADA and is a Trustee of Resurgence, the influential periodical of alternative thought.
Hossack also writes regularly in the national press and lectures internationally on Aboriginal art. She has worked closely with the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Horniman Museum and the De Young Museum in San Francisco.
Hossack also campaigns to preserve rock art in Western Australia’s Burrup peninsular. To further the relationship between Eastern and Western cultures, the gallery regularly hosts poetry-readings and academic-led talks.
If you are interested in any of the pieces you see throughout the hotel, just come and speak to a member of a team! Also, if you’re looking for something to do nearby, the gallery in Fitzroy Square is just a 10 minute walk around the corner and certainly worth a visit.
