Idris Khan

Patty & Bun, Gagosian, and The Hemingway: Idris Khan’s London

Whitewaller

28 September 2016

For the occasion of Frieze London 2016, we caught up with a selective list of insiders—a creative group of London professionals that give us their take on how to navigate the city during this year’s bustling art fair. First, we have artist Idris Khan, who shares his top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax at surrounding the busy art-filled week.

Where to eat
In the future, I would like to make a book about my burger obsession illustrated by my wife Annie Morris. I’ve been searching for my favorite burger ever since a life defining point at The Burger Joint at Le Parker Méridien hotel in New York. The burger in London that comes very close to it is at Patty & Bun in London Fields.

Where to sip
For a great pub, I really like going to my friend Damien Benjamin’s The Hemingway in Victoria Park, and also, The Spurstowe Arms in London Fields. Both do great pale ales and they are perfect for big groups.

Where to network
Once a year at the Frieze art fair!  

Where to see art
We are lucky in London because we have some incredible commercial gallery spaces and museums. I have had my last four solo shows at Victoria Miro Gallery. Marianne Goodman’s new gallery on Lower John Street is a beautiful space, as is the new Gagosian in Mayfair.

Where to have fun
Sitting at The Savoy Hotel’s bar with my friend Raqib Shaw is always really fun. He orders the best drinks from Fabbi, the king of all cocktail makers. (I never know what’s in them, and I usually can’t walk when I leave…)

Where to relax
Running around my kitchen table with my daughter, Maude, and my son, Jago.
