It's that time of the year again when Art in Mayfair, (12 June - 9 July) in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, celebrates art, fashion, and culture with Bond Street at its heart. Timed to coincide with the RA's annual Summer Exhibition, this immersive event sees world-leading fashion and jewellery houses team up with leading artists and sculptors to transform this historic art district into a vibrant live show.
Alongside pop-up installations and in-store events, specially commissioned art flags by the acclaimed contemporary British artist Bob & Roberta Smith RA will appear across Bond Street, North, and South Audley Street, as well as Duke Street.
Meanwhile, Art in Mayfair's Sculpture Trail promises large-scale sculptures by world-renowned artists such as Bernar Venet, Barry Flanagan, Kalliopi Lemos, Johnny Hawkes, Mario Dilitz, Nic Fiddian Green and David Breuer-Weil alongside existing public works by Sean Scully, Dame Elisabeth Frink, Henry Moore, and Antony Gormley.
Brands across the destination from Bond Street, Mount Street, Savile Row, and Mayfair will also participate, hosting mini-exhibitions, showcases, collaborations, talks, tours, and events. Look out for Canali x Dairo Vargas, Annoushka x David Harber, Hanro x Charlotte Posner, street photography walks, and the 'in conversation' podcast series in which Maeve Doyle chats with Bob & Roberta Smith, Dairo Vargas, and other leading artists and designers.
And, of course, while in Mayfair, take time to visit the Royal Academy of Arts annual Summer Exhibition, the world's oldest open submission exhibition, its taken place every year since 1769!
