Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art

The Parasol Unit gallery in Hoxton is a not-for-profit gallery and educational charity with a focus on contemporary art. 

Every year the foundation organises up to four thought-provoking exhibitions by British and international contemporary artists working in various media, which are documented by an accompanying publication. Admission to exhibitions is free.

Founded in 2004 by art historian and curator Dr Ziba Ardalan, the Parasol Unit has been instrumental in launching the careers of artists such as Rana Begum, Michaël Borremans, Julian Charrière and Yang Fudong.

The foundation also engages with the public and surrounding community through a programme of educational events.
