Galleria Illy comes to London

The famous pop-up art exhibiotn Galleria Illy will be coming to London this September (2011)...

GALLERIA ILLY

12 SEPTEMBER TO 16 OCTOBER 2011

Coffee and culture have shared an inseparable bond that has lasted for centuries.

Now, following runs in New York, Milan, Trieste, Istanbul and Berlin, Galleria illy will open in London on 12 September 2011.

Full details of Londons month-long (and free) exhibition will be announced in August.

Last year, the Berlin Galleria featured a unique installation created by the German artist Tobias Rehberger in his trademark optical-pop style.

The temporary exhibition space hosted by lighting and furnishings designers FLOS and Moroso will play host to a programme of art, literature, science, design and food & wine events presented by internationally renowned personalities.

In Gallerias past, events have been created by contributors such as Marina Abramovic, James Rosenquist, Julian Schnabel, Sebastio Salgado and Michael Lin.

One certainty is that the artist Francesco Clemente will be revealing his take on the espresso cup as part of the illy Art Collection.

And instead of illys much-admired 286 espresso cup chandelier, a new installation will also be unveiled.

The installation will showcase the coffee cups interpreted by some of the greatest artists and most influential contributors to film and music of our generation (including Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons, Robert Rauschenberg, David Byrne and Pedro Almodvar).

Additionally, baristas from the Universit del Caff will provide free courses to help people master the art of coffee preparation and enjoy delicious illy coffee.

The complete, regularly updated schedule of events will be posted at facebook.com/illy

The Galleria represents the efforts of illy the high quality Italian coffee company to express physically its love of art, culture and science with its passion for the finest coffee.

Galleria illy hosted by flos and moroso

15 Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R 4SP

Open: Monday Friday 10:00 -17:00
