From the South Kensington Museum Quarter to King’s Road, there is no doubt the borough of Kensington & Chelsea has an incredible offering of museums, galleries and cultural hubs. Over the last weekend of July, we were delighted to further explore this interesting borough through the lens of the Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend.
Through a series of talks, studio workshops, gallery visits as well as exhibition tours; the Kensington & Chelsea Art Weekend celebrated the creativity and heritage of artists, gallerists and cultural institutions within this borough. Here are our favourite talks from this fantastic weekend:
