Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend

Head to Kensington and Chelsea between 27 – 29 July where over 50 participants, including museums, galleries, artists studios and iconic local venues across the borough, open their doors to celebrate its cultural legacy and extraordinary creative future at the  first ‘Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend’. From South Kensington’s museum quarter to the bustle of the King’s Road, from the urban bohemia of Notting Hill, to the modern elegance of the  design museum, this weekend will be  a journey through history. Enjoy a diverse programme of events which includes gallery and museum exhibitions and specifically curated events, public talks, blue plaque tours, public art, children’s workshops, installations and food and drink pop-ups.

Renowned photographer will transform the iconic Square with a dynamic photographic art installation. O’Neill will honour the residents of Kensington & Chelsea through a series of large scale photographic images ranging from band members of the Rolling Stones to 60s icon Twiggy and chef, Gordon Ramsay.

The Saatchi Gallery will host ‘After Nyne’ talks; these will feature a number of influential speakers including Alison Jackson, Michael Wolfson and Debbie Carne. There will also be an interactive installation from the National Army Museum at Duke of York Square where you can “parachute” over the city.

Explore the area at leisure in an array of ways to see as much of the action as possible. You can enjoy a self-led tour using the map, which can be downloaded here or collected on the day, through guided walking tours or a complimentary Red Double Decker Hop-on/Hop-Off bus which will be operating on Saturday (1-4pm) and Sunday (1-5pm). Buses will be departing every 30 minutes from Duke of York Square.
