Priding itself on being ‘the world’s most concentrated creative community’ The Wick and Fish Island had twenty seven studio locations and site specific installations open to the public, with a further 4 spread over the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.


Zaha Hadid: There Should Be No End To Experimentation

Over the weekend I caught the end of The Serpentine Sackler Gallery’s exhibition of Architect Zaha Hadid’s paintings and drawings. All from the period before her first building was erected in 1993, the exhibition focuses on Hadid’s 2D output from the 1970s to the 1990s.
