London-based gallery West Contemporary is set to mark its 20th anniversary with a group show titled XX, featuring a roster of prominent artists from the British fine art scene. The exhibition will run from March 28 to April 1, 2023, in Fitzrovia in London and will showcase works from sustainability art, street art, sculpture, photography, and mixed media.

The show highlights the evolution of West Contemporary since its inception in 2003 as Beautiful Crime Gallery, an early pioneer of the street art movement. The gallery was the first to offer an online platform for original street art, with a physical space in East London that became a hub for emerging artists and events.

Since then, the institution has evolved into an international art consultancy and online gallery, West Contemporary Editions. XX is an opportunity to unite two decades of partnerships with emerging and established artists, creating a unique celebration of British fine art.

The Cameron Twins, a collaborative artist duo of identical twins Abigail and Phebe, are considered one of the most exciting and expressive emerging artists in the UK, working together in various media, including screen print, digital montage, photography, casting, sculpture, and installation. Their work has a solid and garish style using an oversaturated bright colour palette to create a surreal quality and incorporating many familiar, recognizable, fun images and pop-culture references from childhood.
