Now pay attention you're going to have to work hard to find this one. Out East it's not unusual to find a gallery in a deprived part of London; in fact, some galleries wear their slummy surroundings as a badge of honour. Maybe it's something to do with being 'real': more likely just because the buildings are cheaper to rent in poorer areas. West London galleries, on the other hand, can usually be found sandwiched between skinny latte mongers, cocktail bars, and swanky clothes shops. The Louise Blouin Foundation gallery, like the neighbouring Yellow Building which houses a couple of fashion companies, looks like it has fallen here from Outer Space. Especially at night when it changes colours like a flying saucer. Formerly a Rolls Royce coachworks and situated just off St Ann's Road (which, all snobbery aside, is not one of the more salubrious parts of Notting Hill) it's worth a look. Not least because the location means that, unlike more central galleries, less people means more room to actually view the work on show.
