5 Exhibitions You Need to Check Out RN
If you are all Friezed out after attending the international Fairs in New York and Hong Kong, or if the ‘art supermarket’ of art fairs just isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Still get on that plane to London (or if you’re already here, load up your Oyster card) because the city becomes a feast of art and design around Frieze time.
The fair functions as a creative magnet, with all the galleries in town putting out their biggest and best installations and exhibitions. From Mayfair to Marylebone, Whitechapel to Peckham, Bankside to Bermondsey, key dealer galleries, private collections, museums, schools and foundations are all putting on a show. A quick glance at this map of every gallery in London collated by Art Monthly shows that your cultural delights can be had basically anywhere in the the most diverse city on earth.
Here are some of the events worth getting out of Regent’s Park for:
The Maverick Expo is a group show taking place at the Noho Gallery in Great Titchfield Street over the 6th – 9th October. In its 3rd edition, the space is an alternative offering to the usual Art Fair suspects, presenting a street-led series of works by diverse artists from New York, Paris and Japan. Sascha Bailey (son of London photo legend David Bailey) will exhibit works from his ‘Quite Useless’ collective of talented friends and co-thinkers such as sculptor Connor Hirst (son of Damien). Also on show will be paintings by late British artist John Luce Lockett. It’s super easy to stop by after Friezing – there’s a regular shuttle bus on hand from Frieze directly to Great Titchfield Street.
