LONDON | The Serpentine Galleries are 2 exhibition buildings located on either side of the Serpentine lake in Kensington Gardens. The original Serpentine Gallery, which has been championing new ideas in contemporary art since opening in 1970, is housed in a Grade II listed former tea pavilion. The newer gallery, the Zaha Hadid designed Serpentine Sackler Gallery, is located in a 1805 Grade II listed former gunpowder store and opened to the public in 2013.

Many world renowned artists  have had their works displayed at the Serpentine Galleries, including names like Man Ray, Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons and Marina Abramović. The galleries exhibit about eight shows per year, while the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion commission is an ongoing programme of temporary structures by internationally acclaimed architects and designers, who have (at the time of the commission) yet to have completed a building in England. Architects who have designed Pavilion structures include  Ai Weiwei and Herzog & de Meuron, Frank Gehry,  Oscar Niemeyer and Jean Nouvel.

The Serpentine Galleries are open throughout the year, while the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion commissions open during the summer months.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
