Louisa Buck (Cork Street special episode)

Russell and Robert meet art critic Louisa Buck to discuss the history and scandals of Cork Street Galleries in London. For this special Frieze London episode, we also celebrate two outdoor site-specific installations as part of its contemporary programme. We explore the evolution of exhibitions on Cork Street between 1925-2021, starting with the Mayor Gallery. We discuss the Surrealists, Peggy Guggenheim, Max Ernst, Claude Cahun, Sheila Legge, Dali's Lobster telephone, Méret Oppenheim's fur tea cup and much, much more!

We recommend visiting Gina Fischli's Ravenous and Predatory (2021), the first artist commissioned for the Cork Street Banners public art commission. Cork Street also has its first AR exhibition Electronic Hydra Prelude, curated by Daniel Birnbaum which features AR works by Julie Curtiss, Koo Jeong A and Precious Okoyomon. Plus a new work by Tomás Saraceno is also on view.
