Victoria Miro Gallery on Wharf Road, is a sprawling contemporary art gallery.
In a nutshell, this a Mayfair gallery on steroids plonked on the outskirts of Shoreditch. Seriously, this sprawling 20,000 square foot former furniture factory is home to some fantastic contemporary modern art from both established and up-and-coming artists. Plus, it’s right by my flat, come in, and have a cup of tea if you happen to check it out (I may not actually offer you any tea or let you in. It’s worth a try though.)
