Drive Thru is a multimedia art exhibition located in a central London underground car park during Frieze week. It brings together more than 65 artists in an exhibition at the lowest level of the QPark underground car park in Cavendish Square, London.

The work exhibited encompasses sculptures, photographs, film, painting, ephemeral works, live performances, happenings, staged works, installations, synchronised car radio transmissions and sound works As well as being able to be viewed by foot, there will also be periods set aside for vehicles to encounter the exhibition so that this audience can experience the works from their car.

All artists have considered this viewpoint when formulating their work and have consciously thought about how their work could be digested when experienced by a driver or passenger in a car that is travelling through space. This underground car park was built in 1971 one and is unusual as it has the form of a double helix. The floor that the exhibition is located on, level -3 is a complete circle so visitors can easily go round the exhibition more than once and as the entrances for pedestrians and vehicles are separate, the starting and finishing points will different for each of these audiences.
