The area
Address
Neighborhood: Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
How to get there
  • Oxford Circus • 3 min walk

One of London's best commercial art galleries with a large double-height space on the ground floor of the new building on Hanover Square and a second space at the lower level, down a well-detailed staircase, allowing the gallery to use the two levels in different ways, sometimes for different exhibitions; sometimes, as now, for one exhibition that flows over the two levels.

Exhibitions are stimulating and challenging, often focussed on one artist, sometimes with a curated exhibition around a theme, as at the current time (January 2017). Inspired by Giorgio de Chirico’s painting “The Revolt of the Sage” – a ‘metaphysical’ work in which a collection of apparently-unrelated objects were combined together in inconsistent and surreal perspectives to create a new world, a world in which “time did not exist”, the exhibition shows work of artists who, over the last century, have used collage, multiple images and disparate items in different ways, challenging the viewer to look hard at the artworks, the contradictions and disjoints within them and to stretch his or her imagination to see different meanings within them.

I love this exhibition space. Huge white rooms with the space to show both large and smaller works to maximum effect. The current exhibition is so well curated, with the items given plenty of space to be seen in without other images intruding. Also liked the warm welcome from the reception staff. Great location just off both Oxford Street and Regent Street and close to Oxford Circus underground station. Entry is free.

One of two concurrent exhibitions in this Hanover Square upstart (to my mind everything since St. George’s Church where the great Handel played the organ is an upstart here) presents the most recent works of an improbably named Mexican artist called Bosco Sodi. His name sounds like soda particles in an Italian field and indeed his most recent works on display here combine the vacuous with the elemental: stacks of wooden pallets that would not be out of place as exhibits in a criminal trial I was involved in as defence counsel many moons ago; paintings of black matter on white canvases as a sort of minimalist version of Auerbach’s brown earthy sludge. Fortunately the second exhibition of works by a number of Sodi’s Mexican contemporaries relieve the gloom by at least injecting the odd bit of colour into the proceedings.

First time I have been to this gallery, tucked away just off of Regent Street. Had seen the press for the current exhibition and was intrigued enough to make a visit. Fantastic large space that lends itself well to this type of art. Will be watching out for future exhibitions.

Like the rest of the selling galleries in Mayfair, this is pretty small so there’s not loads to see but the two current exhibitions, with work by Jonas Burgert and Chiharu Shiota, are amazing. See them while you can!
