Held annually for almost 250 years, the London RA’s Summer Exhibition continues to be a barometer of contemporary art and architecture through each age. Art of the here and now, open entries, chosen and curated by leading artists of the day: eclectic, thought-provoking, abundant. August 2014.
The Kunsthistorisches Museum (Art History), the Museums-Quartier (Modern Art: Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt et al), a loop around the Ringstrasse (by tram), art deco at Schonbrunn (Vienna’s Summer Palace) and, of course, bubbles for breakfast at the Cafe Central. July 2014.
Showcasing young galleries and new artists from around the world, START continues the collaboration between The Saatchi Gallery, Parallel Contemporary Art and Prudential, who together aim to support emerging artists from Asia and elsewhere, giving them a global platform here in London. A celebration of diversity and creativity around the world. June 2014.
