One of London’s hottest contemporary art galleries, visitors flock to this vast space, part of US super-dealer Larry Gagosian’s ever-expanding empire. Located off the usual gallery circuit in King’s Cross, it attracts a select crowd of art buffs, students and the odd scenester. The layout is very visitor-friendly with one main room and two smaller ones. Despite its small size Gagosian has hosted shows by seriously big names such as Howard Hodgkin and Francesco Clemente, plus a second tier of fashionable US and European artists including Carsten Höller and Cecily Brown.
