Serpentine GalleryFound in the middle of leafy Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, there are two galleries that go by the name of The Serpentine, the original Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a 5 minute walk away across The Serpentine Bridge, was added in 2013. Both provide a platform for contemporary artists, both British and international, with frequent changing exhibitions. At the Serpentine Gallery in summer, the annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is a highlight of the arts calendar; each year a distinguished architect is invited to build a temporary structure which sits alongside the gallery for the summer months. Often controversial and always a talking point, the Summer Pavilion is arguably one of the most interesting exhibitions the Serpentine presents.
