T5 Gallery - Terminal 5
The T5 Gallery is a unique cultural space within one of the world's premier airports. As one of the few permanent commercial fine art galleries in the world to be situated in an airport, the T5 Gallery is in an ideal position to reach and introduce art to a wide international audience.
The objectives of the gallery are to showcase and support established artists, to help develop the careers of young emerging talent, to offer clients not only outstanding works but the experience of its team in the fields of curating and consultancy.
Open everyday from 07:00 to 20:00, the gallery stages group shows along with an on-going exhibition programme in association with the Terminal 5 Sofitel luxury hotel.
