Meka pop up Art

23 / 05 / 14

We are extremely excited to have been appointed by Meka Pop up Art’s opening of the Day to Night exhibition by Stephen Wilkes last week.

Meka is an elite and bespoke Pop Up Art Gallery initiative and is the brainchild of innovative art lovers Anouk, Karen-Sofie and Michael. Though from diverse international and multi-cultural backgrounds, they have chosen London as the city to introduce a fresh, unique and different presence in the art world, focusing on new and emerging artists looking for the opportunity to exhibit their work.

There was a massive turn out for Meka’s first London event – upwards of 250 people, and the buzz on the night was extraordinary. The exhibition featured incredible pieces by Stephen Wilkes that embody beautiful cityscapes from around the world that capture fleeting moments throughout a 24 hour period, from Day to Night, which looked perfect against the background of the chosen pop-up venue, the Rook and Raven Gallery.

Meka pulled out all the stops in what was a brilliant night, and their innovation continued into the catering. With the help of Rare Food they represented the 5 nations illustrated in Wilkes’s pictures through their menu on the night. Our menu offered a selection of canapés that embodied the food and culture of France, USA, Israel, China and the UK. Our fabulous waiters wore graphics of each country’s flag on their aprons to further set the scene for Stephen’s strikingly beautiful compositions.

London Live came along for the ride and filmed us as well. Watch this space for the link.

Rare revelled in the opportunity to support Meka with this fabulous first event and are looking forward to seeing them go onwards and upwards in the art world. We think you’ll begin to see Meka, and the artists they support, ‘popping up’ everywhere.
