Exhibition - Chosen by Holly
British Landscape Photography show at Liberty department store - an offsite project from the photographers gallery.
'A beautiful viewing experience'
A celebration of our recent move to the soho neighbourhood has resulted in a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery and Liberty, a store synonymous with style. British Landscape Photography shows the work of eleven contemporary artists represented by Print Sales at The Photographers’ Gallery.
The landscape has provided inspiration for all of these artists yet they have each approached the subject with a unique and individual vision, resulting in a diverse look at our environment.

Installation - Chosen by Alison
Etiquette at Cafe Oto
10am until 5pm, daily
Etiquette is a half-hour experience for two people in a public space. There is no-one watching - other people in the cafe or bar are not aware of it. You wear headphones which tell you what to say to each other, or to use one of the objects positioned to the side. There is a kind of magic involved - for it to work you just need to listen and respond accordingly. Some say it's good to do this with someone you know, someone to share this with. Others say it works well with a stranger.
