“One thing is for certain: you can’t miss Nelly Duff’s spectacular shop front in the heart of Columbia Road. It is a super-friendly screen-print store and edition house and one of London’s first commercial street art galleries. It exhibits and...
28 Redchurch St, London E2 7DP, UK
“The Londonewcastle Project Space is a stunning space located on the existing site of the Huntingdon Estate in Shoreditch. It’s difficult to slap a title on what it actually is and what they do, but they host exhibitions, galleries, fashion shows,...
