A Place for Art

Fancy dipping your toe into the culture pool this weekend? Look no further than Regent Street for a great selection of contemporary art galleries and fascinating exhibitions. As well as being a hot-spot for fashion and shopping in the capital, the Mile of Style is fast becoming renowned for its range of galleries and new art spaces.
 

Regent Street has approximately 50,000 square feet of new gallery space with galleries, Sadie Coles, Hauser & Wirth and Blain|Southern. Each of these spaces showcase some of the world’s leading contemporary artists, from the irreverent contemporary artist Sarah Lucas (likes to play with everyday objects in creating funny representations of the human body) to sculptor Louise Bourgeois and photographer/videographer Mat Collishaw.

Drop by on your next shopping trip, the galleries are all conveniently located around Regent Street's periphery so getting that culture hit is easy if you're shopping on the Mile of Style. Sadie Coles plays host to some of the world's most innovative artists and lucky for us, the gallery has just opened a new 60,000 square ft headquarters (it's one of Europe's largest contemporary art galleries!) on Kingly Street, running parallel to Regent Street. Don't miss the first exhibition in this new space - the work of New York artist Ryan Sullivan, who uses spray paint to create large scale paintings.

For more arty options, turn off Regent Street and onto infamous Savile Row for Hauser & Wirth (at number 23) - another contemporary art space which opened in 2010. Or visit the Blain|Southern on Hanover Square, which has a minimalist white cube aesthetic.

If you're ever on Regent Street's food quarter, Heddon Street, you may be interested to know that it is home to two contemporary art dealers: the Pippy Houldsworth Gallery at number 6 Heddon Street and Galleria Sproviera at 23. Pop fans, this was also the iconic location where a young David Bowie created the album cover for Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars...

It looks like our window displays on Regent Street aren't the only note-worthy bits of art and design in the area. Let us know which Regent Street culture spot you have visited. Tweet us @RegentStreetW1 with your thoughts, pictures and comments.
