London Day 2

Day 2 in London saw the start of a huge number of private galleries launching shows for the major fall season. Brand leader Gagosian Gallery had a massive group show of blue chip artists called The Show is Over, and White Cube went with Mark Bradford at their museum-like Bermondsey space.

Blain Southern had one of the most stylish shows called CANDY featuring the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Damian Hirst
