… but Cork St might be just a memory soon

When I mentioned in my last post that Cork St seemed to be as ever it was, perhaps I spoke too soon .

It seems that aspirational property development may change the character of the street forever.

Not sure what I think about that. On the one hand it’s hard to deny that the focus of the art world in London has moved on and the larger more ambitious work that you see in galleries like White Cube, Hauser & Werth or the new Gagosian gallery in King’s Cross would be hard to display in Cork St, but on the other hand I still like the intensity of the experience of walking down that street and feeling the juxtaposition of warring artistic styles. Which can still be very stimulating even if you hate everything you see!
