Raven Row

The East End scored yet another hot gallery in 2009 in the shape of Raven Row. The rather wealthy Alex Sainsbury (yes, the supermarket) took over two adjoining houses dating from 1690, splashed around a lot of white paint (with the help of architects 6a) and presented an inaugural exhibition by New York pop artist Ray Johnson. Raven Row's design now works as an exciting fusion of old and new and, pitched as an experimental, improvisatory space, should prove a worthy addition to this arty London hub.
