Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller‘s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for Frieze London 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things London—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, we have the CEO of The Serpentine Galleries, Yana Peel, who shares her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
The Palomar in Soho for malabi rose-scented milk pudding. Foley’s in Fitzrovia for the fish tacos and that playlist! Dinings and Halepi in my favorite local Edgeware Road neighborhood. The River Café for Sunday family brunch as the perfect ending to the week.
WHERE TO SIP
A martini at Dukes. Chiltern Firehouse for mid-week virgin marys under the firehouse painting by visionary artist and social sculptor Theaster Gates. Arts Club terrace after admiring the curated spaces by Amelie von Wedel and her team.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The opening of Leopold Thun’s “Emalin” this fall with Angelina Volk. Shoreditch will also play host to ambitious curatorial endeavors. Augustus Seraphina’s performances at the space and at London Frieze Live promise to be very hot.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
Hyde Park hunting Pokemon with my children. Once they’re asleep: Old Vic, Donmar, Duke of York’s Theatre, Foley’s downstairs, Brilliant Corners, the Ladder Shed at Chiltern Firehouse, and XOYO.
WHERE TO RELAX
At home with Maroush takeaway, favorite friends, Netflix, and chilled Sancerre.
TOP SHOW TO SEE DURING FRIEZE
Marc Camille Chaimowicz‘s “An Autumn Lexicon” at the Serpentine Gallery, and at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, 2016 Turner Prize nominee Helen Marten’s exhibition “Drunk Brown Horse.” Artist and writer James Bridle is also exploring the meaning of the computing cloud with the Serpentine’s new digital commission “Cloud Index.”
