KCAW X CHELSEA WINDOWS
CHELSEA WINDOWS returns for its third edition with KENSINGTON + CHELSEA ART WEEK, this year welcoming a new curator BELLA BONNER-EVANS. The exhibition sees artwork by over 10 Exciting Emerging London-Based Talents take up temporary residence in shop windows and inside stores along the iconic King’s Road. This year, the curatorial theme for Art Week is NOURISH, with the windows project focusing on encouraging the careers of noteworthy young artists.
Featured artists include Anna Choutova at Farm Fetch, Darcey Murphy & Henrietta MacPhe at Love My Human, Georgemma Hunt at The Cherry Moon, Karolina Albricht at Peruvian Connection, Layla Andrews at 28:50, Luke Adam Hawker at Knight Frank, Niamh Birtch at Lavander Green Flowers, Phoebe Boddy at Peggy Porschen, Rebecca Hardaker at The Designer's Guild and Rose Sevink Johnston & Sam King at Nakanojo.
Bella Bonner-Evans comments on her curatorial approach for this year’s edition, “The project brings enrichment to the borough while offering vital opportunities to the young London-based artists who have bravely weathered the pandemic, in line with this year’s Art Week theme 'NOURISH'. For 2022, Chelsea Windows will be lit up with exceptional artwork by emerging voices on the cusp of greatness. Budding collectors will find their next artist to watch, local people will see delightful surprises along their commute, and all will have the chance to encounter work by London's next generation of artists.”
Thank you to Sloane Stanley for supporting the initiative for the 3rd year.
