Last Wednesday marked a nostalgic moment for Unit London - the opening of our summer group show: Looking For U.
The title of our summer group show Looking For U is shared with our very first exhibition, held in October 2013 in a pop-up gallery space in Chiswick. #lookingforU went on to become a weekly staple of our Instagram account – highlighting and profiling exciting global talent in the art world to our loyal and expansive digital audience.
A warm summer’s evening at Unit London Mayfair.
Today, digital software, social media, and virtual reality have all had a hand in shaping the concept of contemporaneity in its purest form. Looking For U explores the new and exciting potential for artistic expression posed by our internet-orientated world. It is an exhibition that celebrates how recent technology has impacted artist’s methods and aesthetics, through the works of eight international artists – André Hemer, Joshua Hagler, Konrad Wyrebek, Marc Gumpinger, Michael Staniak, Philip Colbert, Ry David Bradley and Tom Price.

The private view took place on Wednesday 25 July, attended by over 500 guests who queued around the corner of Hanover Square to marvel at the dynamic paintings and sculptures. The event was unforgettable, lively, and buzzing with conversation, and guests admired works by talented artists whilst sipping on tropical Mount Gay Rum cocktails that complemented the vibrant summer atmosphere.
An evening with...
Mount Gay Rum
Perpetuating a long-standing Barbadian tradition for more than 310 years, Mount Gay rums are handcrafted from a blend of single column and double copper pot distillates and matured in toasted oak barrels, delivering aromatic, flavourful taste, body and refined character.
Double Dutch’s twin founders, Joyce and Raissa de Haas, have a natural affinity for superlative drinks and excellent blending. While the world’s choice of spirits has continued to grow, mixers and sodas have remained bland, but Double Dutch has developed flavour pairing techniques in order to create innovative drinks designed to compliment, enliven and enhance spirits. Offering a premium selection of revolutionary mixers which use only natural ingredients, Double Dutch blend them with the highest quality water from the North of England to create crisp and fresh mixers for refined palates.
