Plaza Premium Lounge unveils art exhibitions at Heathrow and Gatwick to add “unique cultural dimension to travel experience”

Plaza Premium Lounge is presenting two art exhibitions at LHR Terminal 2 and LGW North Terminal, as part of its ‘Art and Lounge’ concept series, adding a “unique cultural dimension to the travel experience”.

Plaza Premium Lounge is presenting two new concurrent Spotlight Art exhibitions, Marcia Scott Flow at London Heathrow Terminal 2 and Joe Machine Nature at Gatwick North Terminal, between April and August 2024.

This is the fourth instalment of new artists following the success of the ‘Art and Lounge’ concept series previously introduced in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and London, in collaboration with curators Amie Conway and Alex Cousens, aiming to create an immersive gallery ambiance within the airport. Additional exhibitions featuring contemporary art are in the planning stages and will be announced soon across Plaza Premium Group’s departure locations throughout Europe.

Plaza Premium Lounge is dedicated to enhancing the travel experience by showcasing the work of local British artists. Integrating their artworks into the lounge environment not only adds a unique cultural dimension to the travel experience, but also offers travellers a glimpse into the artistic landscape of the lounge as a destination before departure.

Travellers can also expect an engaging experience with the artists. Plaza Premium Lounge London Heathrow Terminal 2 and Gatwick North Terminal will both host ‘Meet the Artist’ sessions in May. These sessions offer a unique opportunity to see the artistic vision unfold and engage with the artists themselves. The ‘Art and Lounge’ concept contributes to making travel better by enriching the overall journey and creating a relaxing environment that engages and inspires travellers.

Plaza Premium Group is passionate about nurturing the artistic heartbeat of the countries and cities that house its lounges. By collaborating with local curators, Plaza Premium Group offers a global platform for these talents to showcase their work to a discerning audience of travellers. This commitment fosters a vibrant cultural exchange and nourishes the local creative scene.
