Introducing the St James's Art & Design Walk

Introducing the St James's Art & Design Walk 

As autumn rolls in St James’s invites you to take a step inside. We’re partnering with Wallpaper* magazine to take you on a journey exploring the world-renowned contemporary galleries in the area.

This year’s tour features a selection of intimate, tucked away galleries, including Alan Cristea, David Gill, Thomas Dane, Stern Pissarro, Sims Reed and the White Cube. Learn about everything from Anni Albers’ pioneering wall hangings at Alan Cristea, to José Yaque’s ‘Kind of Blue’ collection at David Gill, exploring the origin of colour.

The walks will take place at 6.30pm on 17th, and at 11am and 12pm on the 20th of October, starting at Christie’s before traveling on. Click herefor details and here to add to your calendar.
