It’s no secret that we at HM are fans of Firmdale Hotels and the inspiring events that they curate and the Firmdale Art Walks are an incredible new addition. Art lovers can take a guided tour of the Ham Yard Hotel on 19th November where you can learn how to collect and successfully hang art, plus how to make it fun and interesting within a living space.
Creative Director, Kit Kemp’s passion for art exists within the interior design of all Firmdale Hotels with famous artists featured besides up-and-coming ones. The next available date is at Ham Yard Hotel and artworks will range from Tony Cragg’s sculpture at the centre of Ham Yard Hotel’s courtyard, to the mesmerising A Million Times installation by Humans since 1982 and Martha Freud’s 32 glowing porcelain pots, which can be found featured within the restaurant.
Starting in the Drawing Room of Ham Yard Hotel, visitors will be guided through Kit’s personally chosen art collection, before journeying on an intimate walking tour to some of Soho and Mayfair’s most prestigious and renowned galleries, led by Firmdale Art Ambassador Olivia Paterson.
Olivia is the curator of Firmdale Art Walks and is the Firmdale Arts Ambassador. Olivia has a whole host of impressive qualifications under her belt including a BA from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, and an MA from Edinburgh University in Contemporary Art Theory. Olivia has worked with some of Europe’s leading private collections and blue-chip galleries, organising exhibitions and advising both corporate and private acquisitions.
