Bond Street and the Royal Academy of Arts announce details for Art in Mayfair this June
Bond Street and the Royal Academy of Arts have announced details of the fifth Art in Mayfair project, including specially commissioned work by Mali Morris RA.
The event will see fashion and jewellery brands of Bond Street come together with the Royal Academy of Arts from 20 June-31 July in London’s Mayfair.
This year, contemporary British artist Mali Morris RA has been invited to design the flags that will hang above Bond Street.
Bond Street has also collaborated with the Royal Academy to showcase installations, pop-up events and dynamic activations to transform the neighbourhood into a live exhibition in recognition of Mayfair’s rich art heritage.
Participating brands include Louis Vuitton, Fendi and MaxMara, Pickett as well as jewellers’ Pomellato. They will be joined by esteemed tailors of Savile Row including Richard James, Dege & Skinner, Anderson & Sheppard, Henry Poole, and Cad and the Dandy, who will be showcasing works by a wide range of artists.
Art in Mayfair will also include the Mayfair Sculpture Trail, a collaboration with Mayfair Art Weekend, which offers an immersive art experience like no other, allowing the public to re-engage with art and explore both the temporary and permanent artworks on the streets of Mayfair.
The trail features an interactive outdoor exhibition of temporary sculptures presented by galleries participating in Mayfair Art Weekend, alongside permanent sculptures and public art situated in the iconic neighbourhood.
The Mayfair Sculpture Trail will include works by Kojo Marfo (presented by JD Malat Gallery), David Breuer Weil (presented by E&R Cyzer), Andy Denzler and Lee Gil Rae (presented by Opera Gallery), Michael Speller (presented by Clarendon Fine Art), and Maurice Blik (presented by Bowman Sculpture). Spotlighted are favourite permanent installations around Mayfair from Banksy, Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink, Anthony Gormley, and a new installation of sculpture by Jill Berelowitz at 45 Park Lane.
