SALOON London is a professional network for women in the arts London which also includes and invites trans and non-binary members with the objective of creating an open forum to exchange ideas, experiences and initiate collaborations. We are interested in fostering dialogue through monthly events that highlight our members’ projects whether through studio visits, curator led tours or panel discussions followed by an intimate dinner. Our members range from curators to artists, advisors, gallerists, academics and journalists. Mara Johanna Kolmel and Natalia Fuller founded SALOON London in July 2019 with Mariana Lemos joining the team in August 2020.
