Shizaru is a contemporary art gallery focusing on a unique visual culture. Launched in 2011 by Benjamin Khalili (son of collector and philanthropist Professor Nasser D. Khalili) and Simon Sakhai, Shizaru provides a multidisciplinary platform for artistic dialogue. Through solo exhibitions developed in close collaboration with the artist to specialty group shows with guest curators, the gallery is committed to showcasing a selection of the most exciting contemporary artists from the UK and abroad.
In the heart of London’s Mayfair, the distinct interior space holds a sense of fantasy and wit, offering a fresh platform to engage with art. It takes its distinctive name, meaning ‘Do No Evil’, from the lesser known fourth monkey of ‘the Three Wise Monkeys’ – See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil.
