Established in 2007, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT is a direct response to Zavier Ellis' and Simon Rumley's fifteen years’ experience of the London art scene. Having discovered, curated and collected many of the most exciting young and progressive artists during this period, both Ellis and Rumley have become known for identifying rising talent early.
THE FUTURE CAN WAIT is a multi-disciplinary survey show consisting of London based or educated artists, who work in painting, drawing, video, sculpture, performance and installation. Conceived to compliment and complete London's Frieze week, THE FUTURE CAN WAIT represents an ambitious, privately funded and curated show that offers a much needed alternative experience to the art fair routine.
THE FUTURE CAN WAIT has featured almost 200 artists, placing many with prominent collectors globally as well as providing exhibition opportunities with international galleries. THE FUTURE CAN WAIT has taken place throughout London including the Old Truman Brewery; Shoreditch Town Hall; Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square; and Art Bermondsey Project Space.
