Established in 2007, The Future Can Wait is a direct response to Zavier Ellis’ and Simon Rumley’s twelve years experience of the London art scene.
Having discovered, curated and collected many of the most exciting young and progressive artists in London during this period, both Ellis and Rumley have become known for spotting rising talent early. The Future Can Wait is a multi-disciplinary museum-scale survey show that features London’s leading emerging to mid career 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.
