About the Museum
Championing new ideas in contemporary art since it opened in 1970, the Serpentine has presented pioneering exhibitions of 2,263 artists over 48 years, showing a wide range of work from emerging practitioners to the most internationally recognized artists and architects of our time. Today, the Serpentine is two exhibition spaces situated on either side of The Serpentine lake in London’s Kensington Gardens: the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. In addition to a seasonal exhibition program of eight shows per year, the Serpentine presents its annual Serpentine Pavilion during the summer months, which is the first and most ambitious architecture program of its kind in the world. The Serpentine offers innovative ways for all ages to engage with modern and contemporary art, architecture and design through its exhibitions, projects, education and public programs.
