 About Live in Art 

Live in Art logo

Live in Art is first and foremost the story of a woman, Kit Bentley. Born in London but a Parisian at heart, Kit Bentley is passionate. And in love. In love with art, painting, France, Dordogne. In love with talent.

Following her successful studies in Art History and Design, Kit Bentley sets a goal for herself: to make contemporary art accessible to everyone, in part through diversification of exhibition places. Art without borders. In 2001, Kit Bentley opens her own gallery, Summers Art, in West Clandon (Surrey). It later gives birth to a digital version, Live in Art.

Many exhibitions take place there, all of which focus on French contemporary art.

Kit Bentley likes the juxtaposition of modern and ancient, the harmonious showdown between historical and contemporary. In keeping with this approach, isn’t exhibiting Eric Bourse’s work in a place full of history a perfectly logical move?
