Inspiring Landmarks is a free exhibition, taking place from 29 June – 4 July 2017, open 10am-5pm each day. All the works in the exhibition will be for sale, and the artists will generously donate 30% of all proceeds to Landmark. Please note that purchase is by cash or cheque only.
Thursday 29 June is reserved as a preview day for Landmarkers; note too that the gallery will be closed from 1pm-3pm on 29 June for a lunchtime event (entry by ticket only – open to all, see Events Programme).
The venue for Inspiring Landmarks is a pop-gallery at:
8 Dray Walk (leads off at 91 Brick Lane)
The Old Truman Brewery
London E1 6QL
Nearest Tube Stations:
Liverpool Street , Shoreditch High Street, Aldgate and Whitechapel.
Parking is very limited and expensive in Spitalfields. There is one car park at the top of Princelet Street if you turn left into Brick Lane, with the car park on the right. The second is on Hanbury Street, heading towards Brick Lane.
A day out in Spitalfields to include a visit to Inspiring Landmarks has much to recommend it. Dray Walk is at the heart of Spitalfields, behind the covered market. The Old Truman Brewery is itself a fascinating example of the re-use of a historic site and is just a couple of streets over from Princelet Street, where No. 13 is one of Landmark’s best loved buildings. Nicholas Hawksmoor’s Christ Church, now triumphantly restored, is also close by as are the colourful markets and restaurants of Brick Lane and Petticoat Lane. There is wonderful contrast between the modernist architecture along Bishopsgate and the City and these speculative streets that sprang up outside the city walls in the eighteenth century.
