Frieze Art Fair Week at The Serpentine Gallery

The Serpentine Gallery presents the sixth in the acclaimed Marathon series. The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon is a two-day event exploring the concept of the garden featuring non-stop live presentations by more than 50 artists, writers, philosophers, scholars, musicians, architects, designers and scientists. The Garden Marathon is directly inspired by the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011 designed by Peter Zumthor, which features Piet Oudolf’s specially created garden.
