It’s the first month of the New Year and we are RESET, REFRESHED and READY for the year ahead. Going to check out exhibitions is something we love to do, to stay creative, get inspired and explore new perspectives. January 2019 has not disappointed with an exciting line up…
Condo London 2019
12 January – 09 February 2019, Across London (Google Map)
Starting the month off, Condon London is an exciting, London-wide collaborative exhibition by 52 galleries across 18 spaces. This is a seriously cool concept – encouraging galleries to play host to visiting galleries to allow for discovery and a thriving international community. We’ll be using the handy Google Map to plot our route!
London Art Fair 2019

This exhibition cannot be missed. The first major retrospective exhibition of Alber’s work is a refreshing insight into the craftsmanship of a Bauhaus educated student. Discouraged from painting by Oskar Kokoschka, and unable to pursue glass, due to the restrictions placed on women by the institution at that time, Albers honed her skill creating striking, modern geometric designs in pictoral weavings. Fusing Art & Craft Alber’s creations were produced for mass market as well contributing to Modern Art, Design & Architecture. We will be sure to catch this exhibition before the end of the month, so should you!
