Diary of an Art Adviser who loves his Art

The busy season has started.

Last week, I made my first pilgrimage to White Cube’s (relatively) new premises in Bermondsey Street.  Whilst it feels more like a gallery – akin to Tate Modern – it is spectacular and a fitting setting for its genre of artists.  I was struck by the huge hall containing tall white walls with splashes of colour from artist Sarah Morris.  Visually stunning.  A real assault on the senses.

And so to Breese Little and the opening of their new space in Great Sutton Street, EC1, and an impressive show of work by artist Benjamin Cohen.

On Monday evening, a two-hour joint presentation together with Susan Mumford at Be Smart About Art Academy (You can follow their discussions on twitter with their hashtag #besmartaboutart) explaining to a group of artists what it means to be in the business of art.

Tuesday and a similar presentation to a group of budding new artists at Debut Contemporary in Notting Hill.

October will, of course, be a massively-busy month with Frieze, Frieze Masters, the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea.  In addition I particularly want to pop into Richard Nagy for their current exhibition of work by George Grosz, Cabinet and Carl Freedman Galleries, Maria Stenfors and Fiumano.

I love this time of the year.
