Nigel Cooke’s Ghosts That Need Tending, 2006.

No one knows quite what to call it. Fitzrovia? The Garment District? But whatever its eventual moniker, the patch of streets northeast of London’s retail mecca Oxford Circus—home of Topshop and H&M—is quietly becoming the city’s newest contemporary art hub. Several trendsetting players who have lately taken up residence: Alison Jacques, whose artists include Turner Prize nominee Catherine Yass; Jake Miller, founder of the cutting-edge The Approach in East London; and leading contemporary gallerist Stuart Shave, who in April opens his newest space on Eastcastle Street with a show by British painter Nigel Cooke.
