Bruce Haines, Mayfair

née Ancient & Modern


Established 2006, the gallery was called ‘Ancient & Modern’, located on Whitecross Street in a former second-hand record shop near Barbican. In 2015 it moved to 2nd floor rooms in St George Street, Mayfair, above one of London’s oldest watch repair businesses opposite Sotheby’s, and consequently renamed eponymously. Over a decade the gallery presented sixty exhibitions and participated at over forty art fairs including Frieze, Art Cologne, Liste, Artissima, Nada and Armory.  In October 2016 the gallery took a (much needed) break from programming and Bruce Haines is currently a TECHNE postgraduate researcher at Kingston University, writing up a PhD which appropriately looks at the anthropology of emerging galleries and their relationships with ‘business’.
