My Art Guide London Editorial Committee
My Art Guide London is a digital issue dedicated to Frieze art fair and the art Week in London, available online and on iOS app. This edition has been developed thanks to an incredible editorial committee formed by Emily Butler (Curator at Whitechapel Gallery), Aaron Cezar (Director of Delfina Foundation) and Patrick Kelly, (Managing Director of Cultureshock Media).
The committee has been working to select the best and most interesting art spaces and exhibitions in town while Rebecca Ackroyd (London-based artist) has developed an art-oriented itinerary around town.
