I was lucky enough to get a private tour of an exhibition on its very last day. It was at the Hanmi Gallery, in Maple Street, Fitzrovia, which is in itself a space in transition. The exhibition is curated Maria Marro-Perera and shows photography work by four different photographers, “exploring the idea of space, time and decay”. I particularly went because I know Maria, and also Susan Johnson Mumford (founder of the Association of Women Art Dealers and Be Smart About Art Academy) and one of the 4 photographers, Chris King.
Why I am blogging about it
I decided to blog about it here to prove that everyone can be a “roving reporter” and also to show how a blog can be posted on the same day the thought occurs to you. Today is a Saturday so I thought a relaxing way to spend my evening would be to do a spot of blogging.
And one more very important reason
While this exhibition has gotten some press, I don’t think enough. The exhibition such an interesting concept, dreamt up by Maria, and the gallery where it is held is actually a “space in transition” due to undergo extensive renovation itself. Today though it’s in “pre-renovation” mode, and so the space has it’s own visual interest and beauty. Check out the pictures below!
