The exhibition, running from April 4-May 2 at the redeveloped historic site on the banks of the Thames, is curated by The MUST, an online marketplace for functional fashion and design made by artists.

Although it mainly features the work of Contemporary UK artists, one exception is the large group of 1960s works on paper by Schendel. She exhibited in London’s Signals Gallery and was the subject of a retrospective at Tate Modern in 2013.

Born in Zurich, Schendel travelled widely - including spending the Second World War in Sarajevo - before settling in Sao Paulo in 1953. She became part of the large immigrant community there, focusing on abstract, geometric works on rice paper (such as the one shown here) as well as working with talc and brick dust.


Su Richardson, Face Cushion, 1975- 80, £3200 or $4000 from The MUST.

Another older work on offer is Face Cushion (1975-80) by the British Feminist artist Su Richardson (b.1947), who is known for reclaiming and subverting traditionally ‘feminine’ skills, particularly textile work.

Other artists on display include Rhys Coren, Emma Hart and experimental designers Jamps Studio.

The exhibition is staged in a three-bedroom ‘Sky Villa’ at the top of the London landmark, which comes complete with private garden and roof terrace.
