Until the 9th October, various venues will be open to installations, performance pieces, video works and inspirational talks. You can access the information via an app-based map, though there will be human guides at each event to help. This is the first edition, led by art pioneers MTart, who want to re-integrate the London cityscape with contemporary art.

SEEN is looking forward to Anna Falafiou’s ‘Sleep’, where members of the audience participate in the creation of a human landscape within an architectural environment, and also Gretchen Andrew’s ‘Crossed Lines’ that uses a wearable eye-level camera to examine the process of creating a painting. Both artists will host Open Studios during Melt Week.
