Summarized by Time Out Magazine as the “Match.com for the international gallery scene”, Condo London 2017 starts this Saturday, January 14th. It works like this: 15 of the most innovative young London galleries share their spaces with 21 galleries from abroad. As a result, visitors get to see artworks from eleven countries across the globe displayed within the context of local galleries.
Brazil too participates in the show: Jaqueline Martins is one of the guests of the Sunday Painter, alongside Seventeen (New York/London) and Stereo (Warsaw). Showcasing works by two PIPA Prize nominees, Adriano Amaral and Daniel de Paula, this is the second time the gallery takes part in the festival, which doubled its size since its first edition last year.
Unless you’re looking for an urban marathon, it might be best to split the visit in parts. The total length of the path from the first to the last participant gallery is 14.6 miles long, a distance that would take five hours to be covered by foot—not counting the time spent actually enjoying the art, of course. But don’t worry: Condo is on for a whole month starting this weekend, ending only in the 11th of next month. So put some comfortable shoes on and print out the Condo London map to start this artistic journey. Ready, set, go.
