ING Discerning Eye Annual

The ING Discerning Eye 2023 exhibition was at the Mall Galleries from 17 to 26 November 2023.

Collectors are invited to browse pieces by established names, discover the next generation of UK-based artists, and buy their favourite artworks.

The 2023 selectors were: 

  • ·     Tony Adams, Former footballer and Collector

  • ·     Eliza Gluckman, Director, Government Art Collection 

  • ·     Chris Levine, Artist

  • ·     Peju Oshin, Critic, Curator, Writer and Lecturer

  • ·     Ian "H" Watkins, Singer and Collector

  • ·     Julian Wild, Artist and Lecturer  


The ING Discerning Eye annual exhibition is a show of small, domestic scale, works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics.

The selectors choose both from the publically submitted works and works by personally invited artists. Each selector's choice is theirs own alone and is hung in separate sections to give each its own distinctive identity.

The impression emerges of six small exhibitions within the whole.

It provides a rare opportunity for works by lesser-known artists to be hung alongside contributions from internationally recognised names.

The only restrictions are that the pieces must be for sale, the artists UK based, the size of the work (50cm in any dimension) and that the selectors choose at least 25% of their section from the open submission.


The annual exhibition has been generously supported by our exhibition sponsor ING since 1999.
