About the Event

We will start with a feminist vibe at Richard Saltoun , 41 Dover Street London W1S 4NS, to see Women’s Work is Never Done curated by Catherine de Zegher. This very interesting show explores women artists’ practices as a way of subverting political oppression.
Someone at the gallery will walk us through the show.
Then we will walk to Waddington Custot, 11 Cork Street London W1S 3LT, to see the beautiful retrospective of Sophia Vari (1940-2023). The show provides an insight into the many facets of her remarkable body of works through various sculptural media and works on paper.
Someone at the gallery will also walk us through the show.
We will finish with Luxembourg & Co, 2 Saville Row, London W1S 3PA, to see a museum quality exhibition of works by the Japanese artist Katsumi Nakai (1927-2013). Nakai developed a unique approach that relied on cutting and assembling wooden panels using hinges to create paintings rooted in the idea of “opening-up”. His exceptional works are shown in dialogue with renowned Italian artists, who worked in expressive abstract style in the mid-1960s.
If people have time at the end of the tour, Sophie can recommend a couple more shows to see ( without us) in this gallery galore area.
The tour will cover established and emerging artists, across nationalises, culture and media!
