BLUE ART PRESS RELEASE: Displacement, a gathering of artists in East London

clare_street1

Displacement – dɪsˈpleɪsm(ə)nt/ (There Goes The Neighbourhood)

From what we can understand, One Little Girl and a Can of Gasoline (a steel fabrication workshop in a railway arch on Clare Street that sometimes doubles as a gallery space) invited the London artist known as Skeleton Cardboard to run an art show.

Displacement is a show curated by Skeleton Cardboard, “a long term resident of Bethnal Green and one of London’s regular names in the Urban Art scene, he has invited artists known to Clare St to participate in this one off, unique group show.  The concept of the show aiming to tackle the issues of the ever changing cultural landscape at the heart of East London’s individual history”.

“Over the past 18 months, artists have established Urban Art at the heart of Bethnal Green. Steeped in history, a part of East London that was destroyed in WWII long before the days of coffee shops and restaurants, Clare St became a hub for the companies that make our city tick and play an integral part of society along with other professional services and businesses.  Clare Street’s businesses consist of industrial units, car and bike garages, steel and woodworks. Having become friends with the owners through my daily passing, I found the businesses more supportive of Urban Art than a typical high street shop and more open minded to the concept of art.  In the last 18 months artists have painted Clare St with us from the USA, Columbia, France, New Zealand, Sweden, Argentina and of course mostly from the UK.

The business owners are rightly frustrated at being asked to leave the arches where soon national and international corporations will take over.  The big name coffee shops and such will pay the higher rents, leaving the current businesses tasked with the difficulty of finding new locations and rebuilding their local client group”

Displacement – dɪsˈpleɪsm(ə)nt/ (There Goes The Neighbourhood).  Opening night (First Thurs) July 7th and then until July 14th

And so “the last show in a steel fabrication workshop/gallery before it becomes yet another expensive coffeeshop, tattoo emporium, cocktail bar, organic foodstore, Tesco Metro or yet another trendy barbers”.

The “All star line up” of artists includes: 616, Ali Hamish, Airborne Mark, Attai, Bill Daggs, Bill Thorpe,  Charlie McFarley, Donk, Fanakapan, Frankie Strand, Himbad, Hugo & Sholto Id-iom, Lost Souls: (aka Captain Kris, Si Mitchell, Squirl, Sp Zero 76), Lilly Lou,  My Dog Sighs, Noriaki, Pang, Sean Worrall, Seeds One, Skeleton Cardboard, This One, Tony Riff and Vanesa Longchamp.

One Little Girl And A Can Of Gasoline is at 299 Clare St, Bethnal Green, E2 9HD.

Twenty artists on the brink at the Leytonstone Art Trail this coming weekend…

“On The Brink is an exhibition in the woods of the Wanstead Quaker Meeting House. 3D artists show their far-ranging versions of life on the edge through different forms, materials and ideas. Challenge your senses. Come walk, look and talk”.

On The Brink happens at Wanstead Quaker Meeting House, Bush Rd, London E11 3AU

Twenty artists will be exhibiting installations and sculptures as part of this exhibition. Their skills have been applied to the topic of On the Brink. The results are wide ranging, vital and topical. Ecology, life in the office, housing, witches, insects, organic sculpture, refugees, a bed that has been made so someone must lie in it … Just a few of the stunning pieces in the woods. Go to the indoor exhibition, Art in the Making, by Quaker artists and Friends, then come down to find the sinister and fun.

Oh, you can spot the leaf if you look hard, see the all seeing-eyes and count how many other little things are hanging around for your entertainment.

Participating Artists:  Martin Adams / Brett Banks / James Blackburn / Kath Cottee / Siobhan Davies / [dis]tinct project by children of Jenny Hammond Primary School / Jo Goddard / Kevin Hope / Sira Cornejo Sz Ibarra / Joanna Jagiello / John King / Mary Knight / Silvia Krupinska / Julia Maddison / Klaus Pinter / Helen Porter / Neba Sere / Sandie Sutton / Tracy Ward / Sean Worrall

This exhibition features 20 artists with a wide range of installations and sculptures explaining their versions of life on the edge. You will find something to love and something to talk about as you walk around the woods at the bottom of the Meeting House garden”.

BLUE ART PRESS RELEASE: London’s Art Car Boot Fair is upon us…

artbootfair2016_flyerCULTIVATE at the 2016 BRICK LANE ART CAR BOOT FAIR, it all happens in East London this coming Sunday..

The artworld’s most exuberant event’, (Sunday Times)

Always one of the best days in terms of the ever busy London art Calendar, a day when art let’s down his or her hair, smiles and engages in a great big Brick Lane car park full of artists, colour and some (very affordable) creativity, looks like another exciting line up for Sunday June12th…

Sean Worrall, Art Car Boot Fair (2014)

Sean Worrall, Art Car Boot Fair (2014)

You’ll find artists such as Sir Peter Blake, Tracey Emin & Emin International, Gavin Turk , Ben Eine, Pam Hogg, Rachel Howard, Marcus Harvey & Turps Banana, Keith Coventry, Pure Evil, Charming Baker, Vic Reeves, True Rocks & Polly Morgan, Darian Leader, Camille Phoenix,. Bob & Roberta Smith, Art on a Postcard with Topolski,  Tabby Costo & MoYou,  Christian Furr . Colin Self . Moniker Projects . Jealous Gallery . Nina Fowler . Cob Gallery . House of Fairytales . Schoony  Jessica Voorsanger and many (many) more… The full list of artists is on the Organ pages.

Once again we’re very pleased to say we at Cultivate have been invited ot take part. Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey (Cultivate founders) will be joined by a couple of selected guest artists in out “boot”. This year we have the pleasure of inviting our regular collaborating duo of word-smiths Quiet British Accent and London’s currently rather buzzing contemporary street art flavoured social commentator Skeleton Cardboard. Cultivate has always been about bring through new names, so we are particularly pleased to introduce Mr Cardboard to the Art Car Boot Fair crowds.

Sean Worrall will be producing a series of 43 small canvas pieces, a numbered series of paintings called “Sometimes They Have Thorns (Small Ones)”, each an original painting on canvas, each one numbered, signed and on sale at £10 each and each one featuring the evolving ‘leafheart’ tag that is Sean’s signature.  Once again there will be what has now become the traditional One Hundred Pieced Piece for the Art Car Boot Fair from Sean Worrall. A One hundred Pieced Piece has been produced exclusively for the Brick Lane Art Car Boot Fair for the last four years, a piece painted in one hundred parts on recycled pieces of cardboard, each piece numbered and signed and on sale at £1 a part with the intention of the art being accessible to everyone, especially to kids experiencing buying original art and encountering artists for the first time (the Art Car Boot Fair is all about interaction)

Emma Harvey will have some of her recent series of hand painted beautifully detailed vintage 78rpm record sleeves at the fair. We believe the Art Tart might well make an appearance with her delicious art tart cake paintings, badges and more again this year. The Art Tart cream cakes and jam tarts only ever come out for the Art Car Boot Fair (and she might have something to do with Emma Harvey’s slightly mischievous alter ego? We can#’t confirm that though).

Original canvas paintings will be on sale on the day direct from the Cultivate artists for as little as £10, we’ll have hand painted vinyl, skeletons, accents (quiet ones), art tarts, cardboard, words, leaves, thorns and more, do come say hello

The 2016 ART CAR BOOT FAIR takes place in BRICK LANE on Sunday June 12th from Midday until 6pm (entry £5)
