What is Contemporary Key?
Set up in 2012, the company is designed to help you discover a new side to the city and of course meet new people. The monthly Saturday gallery tours begin in an artisan coffee and end in a discussion over a drink in a nearby bar - our favourite kind of art really. With access to the array of commercial galleries peppered across town, Contemporary Key helps you to get to grips with the art market and even start your own collection.
With so many splendid events over the autumn, we've picked our favourites that you won't want to miss. Kicking off proceedings is the re-launch at the Fitzrovia hotspot Edel Assanti, best known for nurturing new talent. You'll also want to pencil in the private view of the ambitious Fig-2 series at the ICA with curator Fatos Ustek on 7th October.
Other fantastic moments in the calendar include a studio visit with RA Michael Armitage, who recently had his first solo show at White Cube, and a tour of all the must-see galleries in King's Cross. For those wanting the inside track on Frieze we recommend the week of private views and exhibition suggestions, and even an additional art fair entrance pass for members.
Speaking of membership...
