Box Galleries, 402 King's Road, Chelsea, London SW10 0LJ
Thursday, 13 February 2020 – Saturday, 29 February 2020
No matter the age of a man, can we ever truly separate boys from their toys? A new exhibition, ‘Shaken not Stirred’ at King’s Road’s contemporary art space, Box Galleries, is celebrating some of the most iconic references from men’s 20th century pop culture, in a multi-media art installation.
From iconic photographs of celebrated sex symbol Brigitte Bardot to Russell Marshall’s screen-printed depiction of the Colt Python pistol that belonged to Elvis Presley (and the personal bank cheque cashed by the singer to purchase two of them) the exhibition is like stepping into a man’s retro dream: the ultimate ‘man cave’.
And, of course, there’s no escaping the James Bond reference in the name, Shaken Not Stirred – how the sauve secret agent, a man idolised by many, orders his Martini.
Established in 2012 by Emma Moir, Box Galleries specialises in bringing together recognised investment artwork alongside emerging talent, making it a prime spot for collectors and art fans on the King’s Road. Many pieces are available to lease or purchase for homes, offices, hotels and restaurants.
Private views are available on Wednesday 12 February, with the exhibition available for all to view from 13-29 February 2020. RSVP to the details below to book your private view.
