Starting at the Contemporary Art Society, 59 Central Street, London EC1V 3AF, 10.45
The Contemporary Art Society tour (CASt) is London’s first and most popular gallery bus tour, taking place throughout the year and offering an inspirational insight into the city’s most exciting exhibitions. Designed to offer high level access to artists, curators and gallery directors, the breadth of these tours makes them unmissable for collectors, enthusiasts and patrons of the arts.
This September we will visit a range of galleries, arts organisations and public collections across South London from the emerging to the established. Recent years has seen a reorienting of the London art map south of the river, acknowledging growing importance of this geography on our contemporary art landscape. There are now over 100 galleries and artist studio complexes in South London in an art scene which, marked for its ambitious and vibrant character, is growing all the time. We will arrange for directors, curators and artists to give introductions at each stop-making this tour unrivalled in the level of exclusive access and insight it offers. A delicious lunch and transport throughout the day included.
