Bruce Haines Gallery, formely Ancient & Modern, was established in 2006 on Whitecross Street in a former second hand record shop near Barbican. In 2015 the gallery moved to St George Street, Mayfair, changing name in the process.
The gallery staged over 60 exhibitions and participated at over 40 art fairs including Frieze London & New York, Art Cologne, Liste Basel, Nada Miami & New York and Armory. The gallery represents close to 16 artists and one estate, and the programme often included early-mid 20th century historical works of interest to the artists the gallery works with, including Ian Hamilton-Finlay, László Moholy-Nagy, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Joe Orton and Maeve Gilmore.
The programme stopped in October 2016, but work continued with their artists on museum shows and public commissions, and publications – notably Black Dog Publishing who made books with Jane England and Volker Eichelmann in 2016 and Des Hughes and Tim Braden in 2017.
