AboutFollowing the success of the Age of the Marvellous, One Marylebone's crypt will remain open for the next six months as All Visual Arts' showroom.
The Age of the Marvellous (14th -22nd October 2009) was held over 3 floors of the former Holy Trinity Church and attracted over 6,000 visitors during Frieze week. The art works in the show were inspired by the Wunderkammer or Cabinet of Curiosities popular in the Renaissance period. An era characterized by a revival of learning, the sum of all of man's knowledge could be represented in rooms filled with natural wonders, artificial exotica and relics or art works concerned with the supernatural. So many different ideas in one space led parallels being drawn which unified seemingly unrelated fields of human knowledge like Science and Art.
Now the crypt will remain open for the next 6months, viewable by appointment only. The artworks featured will be from the AVA collection, with a focus on the artists represented by All Visual Arts: Paul Fryer, Reece Jones, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, Alastair Mackie and Jonathan Wateridge. Other specially produced pieces for the Age of the Marvellous by other artists such as Nicola Bolla, Maria Novella Del Signore, Polly Morgan, Martin Sexton, Alyson Shotz, and Ben Tyers will also be on display.
