he Royal Academy of Art’s Summer Exhibition is spilling down Bond Street, Savile Row, Cork Street and beyond until 17 October, thanks to Art in Mayfair, an inspiring collaboration between the RA and Bond Street.
Contemporary art meets inspired tailoring on Savile Row
This year, Savile Row has joined the cultural celebration, with artist collaborations such as JP Hackett and British-Indian artist Hormazd Narielwalla, whose collages hang in the brand’s stunning Georgian Townhouse. At Richard James you’ll find The Paint Suits by Jake and Dinos Chapman as well as sculptures by Mark and Paul Cummings. British artist Charlotte Posner, known for her Pop Doll series, has also been commissioned to create work for the Row’s tailors.
Follow the street-art trail
Discover large-scale sculptures by Sixties Pop Art legend Robert Indiana as well as Gavin Turk, Nic Fiddian-Green, Anthony James and Greek sculptor Sophia Vari on the streets of Mayfair. Lovers of figurative art can feast on etchings by Paula Rego inspired by Peter Pan at De Beers’ Old Bond Street store. Across the street at Tod’s, you’ll find Nic Fiddian-Green’s iconic horse-head sculpture, and above-head fly specially commissioned flags by Gary Hume RA.
On the street, in stores, online and through the Smartify app, visitors can see, listen, learn and follow all of the art and artists on show throughout this incredible autumn of art in Mayfair.
