If you're a parent of school age children, you're probably organising trips abroad and summer camps to keep the family entertained through the holidays at this very moment. But If you do find a free day in your diary, Dexters thoroughly recommends a wander through the Frieze sculptures installation, showing in Regent's park until the beginning of October.
Regents' Park is just a couple of minutes walk from Dexters' St John's Wood office, a definite perk of the job during the summer months.
Another fascinating aspect of daily life in St John's Wood is the opportunity to glimpse a giraffe poking its head out of its enclosure as you pass London Zoo. Together with a thriving high street and excellent transport links - not to mention great coffee - this is an outstanding area of London to live in.
Who benefits from the project? “The galleries are working to sell the pieces, of course,” Lilley says, highlighting the commercial shopfront aspect of the display. “Aside from that, this is an exceptional central London platform for the artists.” Caroline Worthington, the director of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, is impressed. As she points out, “thousands of people are going to see a world-class sculpture exhibition for free”. Crucially, the joggers, dog-walkers and curious tourists are lapping up the art (individuals are defying the edicts and touching the works; public art can mean, after all, public ownership). Context is everything, argues Lilley, adding that this “access for a wide public, through such a high-quality landscape, is markedly different than through a gallery or museum”.
