Artfully Placed

Sometimes the only cure for Historical Artwork and Antiquities Fatigue Syndrome (a common side-effect of spending eight hours at the British Museum) is a hearty dose of mind-blowing contemporary artwork. The Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970 in a former tea pavilion, gives away this remedy for free, sating your craving for modernity with rotating exhibitions from leading 21st century artists. A temporary pavilion is built yearly on the museum’s lawn, typically designed by a renowned architect (like Frank Gehry in 2008). Learn about the current exhibition and pavilion on the gallery’s website.
