Following the recent success of their art space at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at Corinthia hotel, London – where those dining can buy art from the menu along with their desserts – contemporary art gallerists, West Contemporary are pleased to announce ‘The Devil’s Fuge’ art pop-up, a temporary art gallery just in time for Christmas and a collaboration with luxury award-winning, sustainably-focused and vegan skincare brand, ALBIVA. The art pop-up will take over the lower ground floor of ALBIVA’s first pop-up store at 18 Floral Street, Covent Garden, a stone’s throw from other designer brands such as Paul Smith, Agnés b, Jigsaw, and The Shop by Bluebird.
