Drawn from the archive of the late publisher Felix Dennis, and curated by the revered writer and counterculture historian Barry Miles. The exhibition is made up of 50 works from the Felix Dennis collection, which was recently acquired by Shapero Rare Books, each one capturing the incendiary spirit of that time.

I had the chance to speak to Miles about the exhibition and the counterculture of the period.

vibrant, various and stormy – The Winter Group Show at Loughran Gallery

The Winter Group Show is now on at Loughran Gallery on Cadogan Gardens throughout the Christmas period; introducing Parisian artists Frédérique Morrel and Corinne Dalle Ore, alongside other represented artists Piers Bourke, Nick Jeffrey, Dale vN Marshall, Dave White and Jessica Zoob.

Initially a roaming gallery existing through energetic bursts of pop-up shows featuring a variety of artists across London and the UK, Loughran Gallery has via a longer residential spell at Belgravia’s Motcomb Street, and now the bright, industrial space of 43 Cadogan Gardens in Chelsea, transitioned into a gallery with a defined and established rosta of artists.

The artists selected for the group show have been chosen for the flurry and excitement they bring to the gallery. I had the chance to speak to gallerist Juliette Loughran, as well as artists Piers Bourke and Frédérique Morrel.
