Located 10 minutes from Kings Cross St. Pancras International and a short walk from Angel tube station, the Business Design Centre is one of London’s most popular conference and exhibition venues.
We visited BDC when it had modern art exhibition. The exhibition was extensive, that is why there will be two articles on it, giving the names, prices and contacts where possible. Stay tuned for part 2!
The artworks of modern day surrealist Nancy Fouts frequently explore themes of time, religious iconography, nature and humour.
