Follow the contemporary art road this week on a three-day trail around Hackney and North London.
ArtRabbit, an online community for the art world, has organised the Art Trail to celebrate the launch of their new, international website.
Twenty exhibitions will be shown and some spaces will be holding special events such as live music, artist’s talks and tours of their respective exhibitions.
Flowers Gallery on Kingsland Road, Hoxton is just one of the galleries taking part. It offers a free exhibition tour of ‘Patrick Hughes: Reverspectives’, featuring optical illusion pieces on a three-dimensional surface. It will be on display until November 22.
Managing Director of the gallery, Matthew Flowers, said: “We are delighted that the ArtRabbit Art Trail is bringing new audiences to this dynamic neighbourhood… we are proud today to see so many emerging galleries and art spaces within walking distance [of our gallery].”
The ArtRabbit team will also be hosting an exhibition especially for the event. They have created a big visual installation at The Proud Archivist Haggerston that will be on display throughout the duration of the trail.
If visitors attend three or more exhibitions on the Art Trail they can enter a draw to win one of four pieces of art, all worth at least £200, offered by four participating venues.
The trail begins tonight and continues until Saturday, working in collaboration with 18 contemporary art spaces. The event is free and open to everyone.
An art map can be downloaded here to help visitors plan their trail.
