Event…The Lazarides gallery MINOTAUR exhibit at the OldVicTunnels beneath Waterloo station in LONDON, now until 25th OctoberLeave a comment

Installations by Robert del Naja “3D” (from Massive Attack), David Choe (who was commissioned by Mark Zuckerberg last year to paint the new Facebook offices, Conor Harrington, Antony Micallef, and Jonathan Yeo. .Go online on their site to purchase tickets…you can also eat there after you have seen all the artwork at Pret a Diner, Michelin starred pop up restaurant…WOW…http://theminotaur.co.uk/ Now until 25th October in London.
