    Went there for a small festival. It’s a cosy little place with activities. Was expecting more but I guess it’s just a small scale event. But we had fun with friends.

    Located in an old factory, hidden down one of the narrow alleys off Camden High Street, the Foundation (known as DRAF) has for 10 years being bringing new and different contemporary art to London, for example recent exhibitions of graduates from Scottish art schools.

    From the outside, it doesn't look much, but the exhibition space inside is deep and there are additional spaces on the first floor. It has an honest industrial feel about it, which suits the art on show.

    Sadly for Mornington Crescent, DRAF has just opened it's last show - and it is one of their best. The Foundation is selling the property to enable it fun an endowment that will enable it to take its work to new and broader audiences, rather than be tied to this space in London.

    The current exhibition which opened last night (7th September) will last for about a month. Over 1,000 people attended the opening which included not only art, but performance activities.

    (X) A Fantasy includes new commissions and works by modern and contemporary artists including Dora Budor, Helen Chadwick, Theaster Gates, Julian Opie and Wolfgang Tillmans and explores how boundaries move from personal to political, a very appropriate subject in this era where the press and social media intrude ruthlessly. A challenging exhibition and perhaps not one for children.

    The exhibition makes good use of the different spaces as the viewer moves through, with installations filling several of the rooms, combining the work of several artists.

    The sale of the building will enable the establishment of an endowment to enable the Foundation to do new things, including a sculpture park in Somerset.

    As already noted, check out the opening times before you go as it is only open for part of the week, and it is free.
