This group show explores the notion of Parody as a visual comment on an original work by means of satiric or ironic imitation. The exhibition includes the 'Trump poster' by Antony Micallef, ​works by Ralph Steadman, Magnus Gjoen, Sickboy, Dotmaster, Nancy Fouts, ​Carrie Reichard, Anna Laurent, ​Finn Stone, Mr Doodle, Connor Brothers, KGuy among others.

"Art is a language, and if used in the right way, it can penetrate and say things in a highly emotive way that can be very powerful." says Antony Micallef in his interview with GQ.

The Exhibitionist Hotel has launched 'The South Kensigton Gallery' also known as 'SK Gallery', an Airbnb-concept hire gallery which can be rented for short periods at student prices. It is a direct response to London’s skyrocketing rental prices where many creatives are being priced out from central London.

The gallery is focused at the no frills approach - a white room fitted with professional spot lighting and picture hanging system set in a popular art-themed boutique Hotel in South Kensington.

Exhibitors benefit from the use of the Hotel bar and lobby area for any private views and the 24 hour concierge. Their exhibitors would be shown alongside the curated bimonthly art programme set throughout the hotel.

The flexi-hire concept was born out of sheer mass of requests for the space in the already busy art calendar at the Hotel to the end of 2017.  

Our art programme is very popular but we are realistic that not all styles of art will suit the concept of the hotel lobby. With a new flexi-gallery we are able to provide a designated space for guest exhibitors independently of our hotel programme, with more opportunity for graduate exhibitors!
The South Kensigton (SK) Gallery’s prices start at £115 per day with minimum bookings of 3 days that cover set up and take down. Exhibitors are not charged any commission on sales.
