COS x Serpentine Galleries Park Nights 2014


Last night saw an evening of champagne, canapes and music, to celebrate retailer COS collaborating once again with the Serpentine Galleries on the Park Nights series for 2014.

On select Friday evenings from June until October, events will be held in the Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic.

The Pavilion itself is remarkable, an open shell for housing interactions through its clever design. Light dances through the space, with the structure framing the outside flora. An ideal location for hosting evenings of art, music, poetry, literature, film and theory – the focus of the Park Night series. Showcasing new talent, it is an opportunity for exploration and discovering something new.

The schedule of contributing creatives is diverse, with each evening hosting a different genre to express and inspire guests and first-time visitors to the Pavilion alike.
