Object d’Art: House of Voltaire at Cork Street Galleries
House of Voltaire, Studio Voltaire’s lauded art and design store returns to Cork Street for its 2019 iteration, dealing in everything from Rose Wylie blankets to Cory Archangel pool sliders.
Drawing inspiration from influential artist’s shops including Keith Haring’s Pop Shop and the Bloomsbury Group’s Omega Workshop, House of Voltaire offers a new way for audiences to engage with art while benefitting the not-for-profit gallery’s exhibition and education programmes.
Never has it been a better time to throw dinner to a Linder tablecloth, place a Jochen Holz lamp or hang an edition by Jeremy Deller, Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley or McDermott & McGough: during this period the Clapham gallery is embarking on The Studio Voltaire Capital Project, an ambitious £2.4 million scheme providing 42 per cent more affordable artists’ studios, 233 per cent increased public space and a dedicated home for learning and events.
Known for championing emerging and under represented artists, placing a great emphasis on risk-taking and experimentation, here’s a one-stop shop to stop more than once at, as familiar faces from the worlds of art, design, fashion and music play guest shopkeeper and special talks and events run throughout.
HOUSE OF VOLTAIRE, at Cork Street Galleries, 26TH SEPTEMBER–21ST DECEMBER 2019, 5-6 Cork Street, W1S
