Amazon Property has collaborated with a leading art curator to transform six dressed residences at The Park Crescent – a luxury new property development overlooking Regent’s Park – into a special Post-War and Contemporary art exhibition that will run during the annual Frieze London art fair
The exhibition includes works by Alexander Calder, Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Victor Vasarely, Robert Rauschenberg and Yayoi Kusama – curated by House of the Nobleman and sourced from official partners Alon Zakaim Fine Art and Lawrence Van Hagen, alongside works from private collectors.
Frieze London, the world-renowned annual art event in Regent’s Park, runs from 6-9 October 2016. The art exhibition in The Park Crescent will run for three weeks, from Monday 3 October to Sunday 23 October, with viewing by either invitation or by prior appointment.
‘The main launch of The Park Crescent will showcase luxury property and artwork by world-renowned and young up-and-coming artists,’ said Chris Lanitis, Director at Amazon Property said. ‘Visitors to the launch will have the opportunity to view previously unseen dressed residences and view beautiful works of art in our ‘mini-Frieze’ showcase created by our art curator House of the Nobleman.
‘These newly completed residences at London’s only Royal crescent exhibit adroit design, exceptional quality and fine attention. The other unique and sought after features of The Park Crescent are the high ceilings and large principal rooms which lend themselves to providing a stunning canvas for displaying important works of art.’
The art exhibition will run across six residences at the scheme, with each property having a different curatorial theme. Collections of Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Joan Miro, and Salvador Dali will be displayed in a four bedroom residence interior-designed by 1508 London whilst a second three-bedroom duplex interior-designed by 1508 London will feature major abstract pieces by Victor Vasarely and Yayoi Kusama among others.

There will be a Modern British exhibition including Ben Nicholson, Paul Feiler and William Scott in a four-bedroom duplex interior-designed by Taylor Howes and more British and YBA (young British artists) work including David Hockney, Anthony Caro, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry in a three-bedroom penthouse interior-designed by DH Liberty.
In a pair of duplex apartments, with interiors by DH Liberty and Taylor Howes, will showcase ‘What’s Up’, curated by Lawrence Van Hagen of LVH. Van Hagen has selected a diverse range of mixed media work by international up-and-coming contemporary artists. Lawrence is passionate about finding and promoting new young artists and advising collectors of the best emerging artists to add to their art collections. From abstracts by Canadian Thrush Holmes to Swiss Stefan Bruggermann’s stark political op-art there will be a multitude of different styles of art within this special display.
The Park Crescent is London’s only Royal crescent, designed by John Nash (1752-1835) and built in 1812-1820 as luxurious residences, many converted into offices in the late 20th Century. Bought by Amazon Property in 2013, it has now been meticulously restored to its original residential use providing two-to-four bedroom duplex, mezzanine and lateral residences.
Each residence at The Park Crescent has its own character and distinctive features; the apartments range from 1,429 sq ft (133 sq m) to 4,127 sq ft (383 sq m) in size with ceilings up to 3.8 metres high. Each apartment has spacious double or triple-height reception rooms, overlooking the eight acres of The Park Crescent’s private gardens and the 410 acres of the Regent’s Park.
