Viewing London Gallery Weekend

London Gallery Weekend is back and bigger than ever, with a series of events, exhibitions and curated tours happening across the city. Following the success of its inaugural edition last year, the free public event has expanded its perimeter to include a swathe of newcomers, including Addis Fine Art in Fitzrovia, Annely Juda Fine Art in Mayfair and Corvi-Mora in Kennington.

There are more than 150 galleries taking part in the initiative, from blue-chips like Hauser & Wirth and Thaddaeus Ropac to young galleries and emerging art spaces. As such, you’ll see a range of ambitious temporary exhibitions, featuring everything from contemporary painting and immersive installations to performance art and sculpture.

‘London is a global powerhouse when it comes to art and this weekend is a fantastic showcase of the incredible galleries we have here in the capital — and all for free,’ says Justine Simons, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries.

With so much to see in such a short time, it’s worth checking out the selection of Curated Routes, mapped by some of London’s leading creatives. Among our favourites is Simone Rocha’s, which starts at Hannah Barry Gallery in Peckham and then meanders through Mayfair before finishing at Public Gallery in Whitechapel. For something a little shorter, look to Justine Simons’ route, which takes you on a tour of Marylebone’s arty highlights.
