Louise T Blouin InstituteThe Louis T Blouin Foundation, one of the largest not-for-profits in the art world, focuses on exploring the interplay between art and neuroscience. Most famous for publishing the sainted 'Modern Painters' magazine, this their first London gallery is located in a rough area of White City that their PR material euphemistically describes as 'Notting Hill'. It's the kind of ex-industrial space that one expects to see in East London. Nine thousand square feet of galleries are the main attraction, but there are also studios, spaces for community projects and a magnificent triple height 35 ft entry hall. The resculpted interior is a triumph of gallery design while the 80 external windows have been jazzed up by a permanent James Turrell light installation. It's just the kind of arts investment that this part of the capital has been missing. In combination with the new permanent home for Saatchi's collection, it might even put staid old West London back on the map for lovers of contemporary art.
