One thing I can say about the Flavour Gallery is that, it’s different – in a good way.
I made my way to The Hoxton Basement in trendy Shoreditch earlier this month for the launch and I wasn’t disappointed. I wouldn’t call myself artsy, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a totally different way to experience art, and I liked it.
Created by Smith & Sinclair, The Flavour Gallery is a multi¬sensorial experience, featuring artists including Terry Pastor, London Loom, Anja Predojevic and more, each commissioned to create interactive artwork which plays on what a gallery is traditionally understood to be.
The artists involved have created unique artwork pieces exclusively for the exhibition that will be auctioned off by renowned auction house Christie’s, with The Flavour Gallery shop also selling selected prints from each artist for four weeks only.
The Flavour Gallery also features God’s Own Junkyard, Smith & Sinclair x Lanique Cocktail Bar and a gift shop selling unique works exclusive to visitors.
The Flavour Gallery cocktail bar showcases a range of bespoke cocktails in partnership with liqueur experts Lanique. The entire menu plays with Lanique’s delicate blend of ingredients that have been refined and perfected over centuries. Also, there are a range of non-alcoholic cocktails blended with one of the leading soft drink specialists, Firefly.
Smith & Sinclair have taken the gallery experience to a whole new level, what gallery will allow you to feel, smell, and scratch the art work? None that I know of.
The Flavour Gallery is definitely worth a visit if only to experience art in a new way. The gallery is opened from Thursday 9th November until Sunday 17th December. Limited tickets priced at £15 are available here.
