GSK Contemporary: Eco Art at the Royal Academy

Mona Hatoum, Hot Spot, 2006 at GSK Contemporar - Earth: Art of a changing world

Something’s happening round the back of the Royal Academy… A brand new exhibition, GSK Contemporary – Earth: Art of a Changing World, is about to open at 6 Burlington Gardens.

The show explores the subject of climate change, and features the work of 35 leading contemporary artists. You’ll see video, photography, sculpture, installation and more, from artists including Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley and Cornelia Parker.

Each artist has approached the theme in a different way, making for an interesting and thought-provoking exhibition.

Highlights include:

The eco-art focus continues in Sketch‘s pop-up restaurant, with quirky sculptures, kitsch décor and recycled furniture.

There’s an outdoor crêperie and oyster bar complete with blankets and hot water bottles, plus an amazing indoor eaterie serving breakfasts, lunches, cakes and eco-friendly champagne.

Whether you visit for the art, the environmental theme, or the cool café, you’re sure to love GSK Contemporary.
