Sculpture lovers

As part of Frieze London, the capital’s best international contemporary art event, check out Frieze Sculpture Park 2019 for London’s largest free display of outdoor art. See the creative work of Robert Indiana, best known for his LOVE sculptures which have been previously displayed at 45 Park Lane.

For film fans

Another must-see exhibition this autumn is dedicated to director Stanley Kubrick at the Design Museum. This is your chance to see how he created genre-defining worlds for his films and to relive some of his most iconic scenes. The museum invites you to, “Step inside the world of Stanley Kubrick, one of the greatest filmmakers of the 20th century.”

Design Museum, Kensington
Until September 17

Street art

For delicious dining and to witness a fantastic piece of street art, head to the Scarlett Green café on Soho’s Noel Street. On arrival you can’t miss the striking art-covered façade, which is the work of artist Bonnie and Clyde, who held her first solo exhibition at 45 Park Lane back in 2017.

Meet the artists

On the last Friday of every month, we welcome an artist to 45 Park Lane to talk about their work and love of art. Over the years our lobby has played host to some of the world’s most exciting contemporary artworks, so we’re particularly excited to now offer the chance to meet some of the artists.  Come to one of our upcoming artist talks and see what we mean.
