Bringing colour to the borough in October

Kensington + Chelsea Art Week – a week-long celebration of the cultural heritage of the neighbourhood, with events and installations across the area, including two large-scale installations on Sloane Square and Duke of York Square.

From 1-10 October, world-class institutions and cultural practitioners came together to ignite a stimulating calendar of events. Returning for its 3rd year, Kensington + Chelsea Art Week offered the capital a lively series of public art trails, exhibitions and installations featuring over 150 local galleries and cultural venues and is fast becoming one of the key moments in London’s cultural calendar.

Sloane Square hosted ‘In Bloom’, a majestic large-scale geometric sculpture and light installation created by a London-based design collective toystudio. This captivating cell-like pearl-gold sculpture, aims to inspire visitors to contemplate a different side to the natural world and the underlying mathematical nature and beauty of the universe.

Duke of York Square was home to ‘Through’ an interactive walk-through installation by British artist Liz West. The triangular glass rainbow structure is a bright and playful addition to the Square, offering visitors an immersive visual journey and inviting them to explore the vibrancy of the neighbourhood through a different coloured lens.

Kensington + Chelsea Art Week is supported by Cadogan, as part of our contribution to the wider stewardship of the area and patronage of arts and culture in Chelsea.
