The Future Can Wait is a direct response to Zavier Ellis' and Simon Rumley's ten years experience on the London gallery circuit.

Having curated and collected some of the most exciting young and progressive artists during this period, both Ellis and Rumley have become known for spotting rising talent early. The Future Can Wait is a museum-scale survey show consisting of many of these artists, who work primarily in painting, but also in video, sculpture, performance and printmaking. Conceived to compliment and complete London's Frieze week, The Future Can Wait represents an ambitious, privately funded and curated show that stands together and apart from the art fair routine.

Edition 01 focuses on London based or educated artists, with the intention of expanding the show internationally at a later date.
