About Breese Little

The gallery represents contemporary artists based in the UK and internationally, additionally organising exhibitions with non-gallery artists. Our permanent gallery at 30b Great Sutton Street provides a platform for consecutive exhibitions while we simultaneously pursue external collaborations, programmes and exhibitions. As well as collaborating with living artists, we are increasingly active in the secondary market, working to present historically minded exhibitions and dealing in vintage NASA photography.


Dedicated to educational opportunities, BREESE LITTLE established the termly Prize for Art Criticism and hosts regular talks and lectures including a partnership with LSE Arts. To support the work of our artists we frequently publish exhibition catalogues, commission essays and initiate other complementary projects.


Gallery exhibitions and projects have received extensive coverage in national and international publications, including: The Guardian, The Spectator, Wired, BBC, Time Out, Art Monthly, Art Info, The Art Newspaper, Photomonitor, thisistomorrow, The Week, Third Text, Elephant, Garageland, Monocle and After Image.
