Viewing Time Takes a Cigarette at Josh Lilley Gallery

We saw, experienced and touched less art in 2020 than (almost) ever before. But just how much did this affect you? Did you miss it? Did you seek solace in it? Are you now more sensitive to it?

Time Takes a Cigarette, the first group exhibition at Josh Lilley’s recently expanded gallery in Fitzrovia, brings together works by 14 international artists that address our complex relationship with art and art making.

Highlights on display include Brandi Twilley’s theatrical tableaux, Kathleen Ryan’s mouldy fruit sculptures made from gemstones and Gareth Cadwallader’s pressure-formed miniatures.

The gallery is currently closed but works can be browsed online. You can also take a virtual tour of a slimmed-down show via the Vortic App.
