British Curator and Artist
Founder of Art Below
Ben Moore is the founder and curator of Art Below, a London-based contemporary art organisation that uses billboard space to showcase art and has shown the works of more than 3,000 artists in London, Tokyo, Berlin and Los Angeles.
Founded in 2006, Art Below has an important position within the movement for contemporary art in public spaces. Moore’s mission is to “enrich the everyday life of the travelling public by giving fresh insight into the very latest in contemporary art whilst at the same time providing a platform for emerging and established talent.” Art Below has partnered with Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair, Hospital Club, Art Rooms, Mayfair Art Weekend, Don’t Panic and Peace One Day.
Alongside Art Below, Moore has curated exhibitions at galleries and museums including London’s V&A, the Saatchi Gallery, Somerset House and The Pacific Design Centre in Los Angeles. Art Wars, Moore’s 2013 Saatchi Gallery exhibition of Stormtrooper helmets by artists including Damien Hirst, Jake and Dinos Chapman and Alison Jackson, was a sell-out success, attracted widespread media coverage and toured to Sweden, Miami and Los Angeles. Moore has since gone on to produce a number of other editions of the project, most recently with Art Wars 9 in London, in late 2019.
Following the disappearance of his brother Thomas in 2003, Moore has maintained a strong connection with the Missing People charity, which commissioned Moore to create UnMissable – a 2018 exhibition of portraits of missing people at The Other Art Fair in London’s Truman Brewery. Moore has organised a number of other arts projects in support of different charities and is on the art committee for Macmillan Cancer Support. He was was included in Artlyst’s Alt Power 100 list in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
