British art duo were recently in Paris for the FIAC art fair, where they gave a talk and announced they will be opening their namesake museum in London in 2020.
A bit of background: They’re converting a 18th century brewery in London’s Spitalfields into their own museum that will preserve their legacy, showing over 50 years artwork of the duo’s collaboration.
