Brown’s Hotel’s activity during Mayfair Art Weekend

This summer, Mayfair Art Weekend (30th June – 2nd July) is opening the doors to art in Mayfair, with public access to the area’s many galleries and auction houses

With an exciting programme of free talks, walks and over 60 exhibitions to see, Brown’s Hotel will offer a creative hub from which art lovers can explore Mayfair:

  • All Day Arty Brunch: Throughout the weekend Brown’s Hotel will offer a one-off dining experience, an ‘All Day Arty Brunch’ at HIX Mayfair. Guests will be able to experience dishes inspired from Damien Hirst’s and Mark Hix’s Pharmacy 2 restaurant. Aligning with Mayfair Art Weekend’s ambition to share art with the public, HIX Mayfair will present a selection of new and established artists throughout the restaurant, in addition to Mark Hix’s collection of British artworks by Tracey Emin, Matt Collishaw, and many more.
  • Less is MAW Cocktail: Brown’s Hotel will continue the art celebrations and will be calling on all cocktail lovers to The Donovan Bar to try the specially curated ‘Less is MAW’ Cocktail. The summery gin based cocktail, is not only the perfect refreshing drink for a summer’s evening but also visually beautiful as it changes colour with every sip. Image below.
  • Brown’s Art Tours: On the 1st and 2nd July, there will be a number of already established and respected Brown’s Art Tours taking place. Maeve Doyle, the host for the ever-popular Brown’s Saturday Mayfair Art Tours, will return to host two specially curated art tours. With more than eighteen years of experience within the art world – much of which has been spent in London – as a curator, agent and gallery owner, Maeve brings with her a wealth of knowledge which she is more than willing to share with guests.

Guests will be met by directors of four different galleries and offered a personal introduction to their current exhibitions, helping international art lovers navigate their way through the hundreds of private shows that collectively make Mayfair one of the world’s greatest art destinations. Following the final tour, guests will return to Brown’s Hotel for a three-course lunch with wine pairings at HIX Mayfair.

  • Sidsel Christensen: Guests visiting Brown’s Hotel over the MAW weekend will also be able to view a series of video sequences in the windows of Brown’s Hotel: Study for Composition VI: Framing Sensual 31 Phase Transitions by Sidsel Christensen.
