If you can make it up the stairs as far as the top floor of the Saatchi Gallery then the the Phillips De Pury Exhibition is well worth a visit. Phillips has been bringing new artists to the forefront of the contemporary art scene for many years now and the current exhibition focuses on Korea. ‘Korean Eye: The Moon Generation’ is a selling exhibition bringing together a group of leading Korean contemporary artists and galleries exhibiting some vibrant pieces to say the least.
