Welcome to The Wick

— Katy Wickremesinghe
Dear All,

If you are not already reeling from the socialising, viewing and overstimulation of Frieze week then there is always next week’s kick off with FIAC for the culture thirsty. The week commenced with The Pace Gallery party at Nomad and via openings, events and many a gathering rolled into Friday’s Versace x Frieze dinner. Frieze has got its mojo back. Galleries offered up plenty of soothing moments with colour fields and still lives in abundance sating a desire for contemplative, heart-warming work. For those looking for something more immersive in their viewing, Superblue London from Marc Glimcher and Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst opened its doors at Burlington Garden with a mystical forest installation and mist filled bubbles, from artist duo A.A Murakami.

The union of art and fashion is tightly knotted with partner, MatchesFashion.com at the fair and events at Dover Street Market and Zilver. Meanwhile, for the first time Celine partnered with Sotheby’s on its Contemporary Art Evening Sale.

Enjoy the serendipitous meetings of art and fine minds IRL in the weeks to come.

With best wishes from me and the KTW family,
The Wick - Home
