OCTOBER 2017 GALLERIES 41 M AY FA I R a r o u n d The West End comes alive for Frieze. Imitate Modern is soon to celebrate one year in Shepherd Market, with ‘Provocateur’ by Tyler Shields opening in cooperation with nearby Peruvian restaurant Coya; the Hollywood focused collection is exhibited at both the gallery and restaurant. Shepherd Market has become a destination for infant galleries. Hignell Gallery and Maddox Gallery, situated across from one another on Shepherd Street, created a summer buzz, with ‘The Cactus House’ exhibition at Hignell becoming a must visit of the summer, whilst Maddox’s oh so instagram- able floral window displays have quite literally framed the market. The rise and popularity of art exhibitions through the year at the finest hotels continues with Ewan David Eason’s ‘Mappa Mundi’ at 45 Park Lane in association with Ackerman Studios. Mr Eason’s latest exhibition features maps of the world stencilled in detail with 24 carat gold. Ruinart – ‘la plus ancienne maison de champagne’ and official champagne partner of Frieze have got together with hotel Rosewood London to host a Ruinart Art Exhibition in the Mirror Room. The exhibition with pieces from the house’s private collection including commissioned work reflecting the art of Ruinart. Meanwhile in St James’s, whispers tell me that Maison Assouline could quite possibly be hosting a night to remember with de Pury de Pury; will Simon de Pury take centre stage? And finally, on 5 October aka West End Night, galleries and non- profits open their doors to Frieze visitors, with many private views and special events taking place. E lizabeth Attew of looks at the bigger picture O n t h e COV E R Lynn Chadwick at Osborne Samuel Born 1914 in London, Chadwick trained as a draughtsman, joining an architectural practice in 1937 designing exhibition stands. After the war he began constructing mobiles out of wire and balsa wood, with his first one man show in 1950. In ‘52 he contributed sculptures to the British entry at the Venice Biennale. In the early 1950s, Chadwick concentrated on solid, free-standing sculptures, and in 1956, to the outrage of the artist establishment, won the prestigious International Sculpture Prize at the XXVIII Venice Biennale, pushing Giacometti into second place, and thus securing his international reputation. Tate Britain held a major Chadwick exhibition in 2003, the year of his death.
