Ten international artists work together to address problems of a post-Brexit world. Top on the agenda: How will the lonely, isolated British people get their stuff? Britain will stand alone, surviving on warm beer, cabbage and dry biscuits (like the good old days). What will they be willing to sacrifice for the sweet taste of foreign carbonated drinks? 


Taking on the theme of CONSUMPTION, artists will explore what it means to mentally consume ideas, how humans consume the world, and the ethics of consumption. Come feed on artworks that will EAT, DRINK, BREATHE, USE, ABUSE, WATCH, INGEST, DEVOUR, and GOBBLE UP your attention. 


Opening night on the 22nd will feature performances and live music.

 The photograph in question “ In memoriam” is a homage to the Queer victims of the holocaust. 

It was on show at the Arts fems exhibition at Central St Martins School of Art in Kings cross, London as a part of LGBTQI Month in February. Due to the success of the show the dates were extended. Then due to the negligence of the curators the work has mysteriously vanished. 


The piece in question has a market value of £10,000 GBP. 


It depicts the Artist’s bare chest with a Pink upturned Triangle entitled “ In Memoriam” The work was originally made in 2015. 


The Artist has said he is saddened of it’s disappearance and hopes it can be returned home to his studio for the prosperity of the nation. 


The work was sold as prints at HOMOPROMO Hosted by Herman Miller, Holborn, London  in Aid of Stonewall in Autumn 2017. The prints raised lots of funds for this great charity. However now the original has gone missing. 


He has created a poster of the missing and valuable Art work which commemorates, documents, empowers and memorialises a very dark time in Queer and Global History. He has asked for it to be shared far and wide on social media. To help find this important work. The Art work was due to go on display for another exhibition. 


He is taking legal advice on the missing Art work. 


“A pink triangle has been a symbol for various LGBTQ identities, initially intended as a badge of shame, but later reclaimed as a positive symbol of self-identity. In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, it began as one of the Nazi concentration camp badges, distinguishing those imprisoned because they had been identified by authorities as homosexual men,[1] a category that also included bisexual men and transgender women.[2] In the 1970s, it was revived as a symbol of protest against homophobia, and has since been adopted by the larger LGBT community as a popular symbol of LGBT pride and the LGBT rights movement.[3][4]

PRIVATE VIEW: Friday 8th March 6-9pm 

OPEN: Saturday and Sunday 9-10th March 12-6pm 


The concept to put on a show of paintings simply for the medium of the material is so old fashioned it’s practically antique stated Laura Cummings in a Guardian Article in 2013. So in that vain of thinking we bring you the new fashion…… 

Paint! What is the state of Contemporary painting today? Well these four Artists from Chelsea College of Art put on a diverse range of styles and ways of making to explore exactly this issue. When asked Is Painting dead? Yawn stated Charles Saatchi in 2009. Ten years later and that statement still rings true. What a stupid question to ask…. ! 

Chelsea College of Art is World renowned for producing some of the biggest names in Contemporary Painting today and these four students are well on their way too. 

Some 100 years earlier a rather well known painter stated “Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the artists soul”  Vincent Van Goth

Paint in its very simplest form is pigment and a binder but once transformed by the Artist it becomes something else something magical inexplicable and a source of wonderment. It is as Van Goth said the Artists soul. 

Each of the artists in this exhibition have something unique to say a different perspective on painting, its medium, its message and its soul…… 

Paul Chisholm has said of his paintings that its a process which allows his soul to explore and express his deepest fears and emotions. His current series “ Clowning around the jokes on us? explores exactly this issue. 

Shefali Asija goes on to say Science fills me with awe and captures my imagination and gives me a  philosophical view of life and with my painting i explore its ability to capture these qualities to engage viewer  curiuosioty and to get them to think about the nature of existence. 

Lelia Byron’s perspective is I paint stories of people and places both real and imagined. Everything in this world has a story: objects, people, and places. I am a lover of stories and a storyteller myself. I paint individuals, but I also see my work as an exploration of the universality of human dreams, needs, struggles, and joys.

Youngchen says As a painter, do i express openness? When a painter agonises over how to select an object and express it, the object is not the object of reality. It is an object that everyone knows but the object in my painting is the subject of my own thinking at that moment of expression. 

So all in all Painting as a medium and as a message encapsulates the whole of the human spirit. Painting is very much alive !!! 

White Conduit Projects opened in Central London location at 1 White Conduit Street N1 in November 2014. It is showcasing Japanese artists and designers alongside British and international artists in a programme of innovative exhibitions across a variety of media.

THIRST FURSDAY @ CHELSEA COLLEGE OF ART

The first Thursday of the month is a traditional time for gallery show openings. While considering this date for our exhibition, our internationally-diverse group of artists began to discuss the symbolic representations across cultures for the days of the week. In the Asian culture, Thursdays are represented by the symbol of a tree. In Western culture, the tree is a symbol for knowledge. We all agreed that as art students, we are in pursuit of knowledge. Then the discussion got less intense, and we agreed to call this show Thirst Fursdays!

Arts for Education @ House of Vans

Blue Dot Generation presents ‘The Arts for Education’ at House of Vans. A 4-day immersive event of art, photography, performances, documentaries, panel discussions, sport, fashion, workshops and music, aimed at educating us all on the damage we are doing to the oceans.

About

This event is an opportunity for old, young, green and non-green audiences to engage and  and their own connection to the planet through creative education. BDG is a sustainability platform promoting the use of the arts for education. By engaging local communities and inspiring international audiences it will transform the relationship between humans and the blue planet. Blue Dot Generation brings together artists, scientists and entrepreneurs who are exploring solutions to the problems our planet is facing. Science and art are both human efforts to understand, explore and describe the world around us, to communicate and share a vision of the world in different ways. Blue Dot Generation aims to harness these powers to educate and engage communities and inspire a change in how we treat the planet.

Our venue, House of Vans, is where “Of  the Wall” lives. It’s a place where imagination lets loose over concrete bowls, art installations, workshops and concert stages, inspiring every person who runs, rolls, or stomps through its door. Located in Chicago, Illinois and Waterloo, London, as well as pop-ups around the world, House of Vans is home to the creativity that moves us.
In the vaults under London’s busiest station, Blue Dot Generation will bring the ocean to the city. Driven by their passion to make a difference, Blue Dot will change people’s habits by helping them visualise the seriousness of the challenges all living things are facing. Although London is far from the sea, this immersive event will transform the relationship between humans and the oceans.

MFA @ CHELSEA COLLEGE OF ART LONDON

I'm pleased to announce that i have been accepted onto the Fine Art Masters at Chelsea College of Art starting in October 2018. This has been a long term goal for myself to finally afford the space, time and money and shear genius to be accepted on such a prestigious course.  I have spent the greater part of my  Artistic career living in London but after being rejected by the Royal College of Arts in around 2007, I almost gave up hope of ever being able to progress to such an institution. Now I will gracefully join the ranks of Artist's including David Hockney, Richard Deakon, Patrick Caulfield, Elazabeth Fink, Anthony Caro, Franko B, Anish Kapoor, Helen Chadwick, Rebbeca Warren, Gillian Wearing and of course Dirk Bogard ! Name dropping aside the chance to study and work with a new generation of Artists and my contemporaries next to Tate Britain and further develop and expand my practice to a wider audience will be a life changing and challenging year ! I can't wait !

FANFARE - OOMPAH OOMPAH

LA MAISON BLEUE  PENTECOSTE @ VIC FEZENSAC, FRANCE 2018 

WEEKEND OF 18TH TO 21ST MAY. 

 

oompah.jpg

" FANFARE " it will be an absolute pleasure to document and dissect a very French festival in rural France one which I have been a lucky outsider to witness for over 15 years.... Pentecoste is the festival of the birth of the Church 49 days after Easter and commemorates the descent of the holy spirit in this small part of rural #France this #festival is celebrated by drinking shit loads of french wine, a combustion of #fanfare bands, the eating of foie gras and unfortunately the killing of #bulls in the arena( I am a Tauren btw ) . #Political, #religious and #ethical and brexit issues will be set aside in this exhibition instead the #celebration of #life #music and #dancing will be the main points of the show, cultural differences and the current #european issues will be set aside in a show of love is for all and #music is my first love.

(Side note note to this, I don't think I'm capable of making work which in some way is not provocative or does not raise issues however it will all be fun fun !!!)

Queer Art(ists) Now

‘That’s one of the things that “queer” can refer to: the open mesh of possibilities, gaps, overlaps, dissonances and resonances, lapses and excesses of meaning…’ – Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick

Queer Art(ists) Now
Presented by And What? Queer Arts Festival and Pilot Press

This eclectic new exhibition located in the large, spacious vault of the old Hackney archives in Haggerston features over 50 artists, performers and makers and offers an insight into the breadth and politics of queer art practice today. 

Together with a series of events, the exhibition offers a focused view of the practices that have formed and continue to shape contemporary queer art, including works by Linder, Prem Sahib, Rottingdean Bazaar, Holly Johnson, Princess Julia, Keith Vaughan, Jeffrey Hinton, John Booth, Urara Tsuchiya, David Hoyle, Paul Chisholm and graduates of the Goldsmiths MFA. 

Over 40 artists out of over 200 applications were selected by our panel, Andrew Ellerby (And What? Director), Olivia Laing (Writer: The Lonely City, Frieze magazine), Evan Ifekoya (Artist) and Richard Dodwell (Pilot Press) to be included in a salon-style exhibition that will take place at Archive Gallery, part of the Mill Co. Project space in Haggerston, London, between Thursday 12th – Sunday 15th October.

Private View: Thursday 12 October, 6 - 9 PM
inc. drinks, canapés and performances

List of events:

Friday 13 October
Queer Life Drawing class, 7 - 9 pm

Saturday 14 October
Perfomance dinner (details to be announced)
with Urara Tsuchiya and Richard Dodwell

The exhibition is run as a not-for-profit with prices of the work determined by the artist, with any profit from sales being returned directly to them.

In addition to the above, Queer Art(ists) Now will be raising money for survivors and local residents of Grenfell Tower, in support of future activism and a planned one-year on memorial project organised by local activist groups. Anyone involved in the exhibition has the option to donate their work to the cause and many of our invited artists have already very kindly agreed to do so. 

This exhibition is for them, for us, and our collective struggle for a world without arms manufacturers, poverty, destruction and those who would wish to deny us our humanity and freedom.
