BLUE ART LIST Press release: Five years on from that infamous September First Thursday with the naked honey covered red men..

 

redman_header
Five years on from that infamous September First Thursday with the naked honey covered red men, the messy punk band in the back of a truck, the opening of Cultivate in a space that 24 hours before had been a storage room for a junk shop and full of old beds and all kinds of diabolical rubbish (we picked up the keys in the afternoon, cleared it out and three hours later we had a First Thursday exhibition open and a group show hung on the walls of a new gallery. We’d put the word out and invited artists the night before, people turned up with art and drills, rolled up their sleeves and it all came together), the story is taken up on the Organ magazine pages

There’s been something like 150 solo shows, group shows, events and more cultivated now, but rather than celebrate the fifth birthday and Cultivate shows in Vyner Street, in East London warehouses, in North London basements, on streets, under railway bridges, in car parks, rather than spend time celebrating the first five years we’d rather get on with the next things…

debased_sept2016This September Cultivate returns to Dalston and that beautiful basement known as BSMT Space. In March it was Debaser and slicing up eye balls, on September 22nd it will be Debased.

Debased will be nother gathering of pro-active artists and a maximalist exercise in cross-pollination. A room alive with contemporary painters, so-called street artists, performers, print makers and more gathered together by Cultivate’s Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey…. Watch this space…. Opening on Thursday evening and then a short sharp shock of a show with events  through the weekend and closing on Sunday, no messing about, just artists, walls, people, oil paint, spray paint, fabric, zines, performance and more….

Full artist line up and lots more about Debased and Cultivate at BSMTspace coming up very soon, watch this space….

aaa_cultevolved_dogs2016v2Oh and because art should engage and because all dogs matter, we shall be taking Cultivate to the Victoria Park dog show again this coming Sunday 11th September

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.

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

Harvey and Worrall shall be presenting some recent paintings and pieces alongside all the colourful fabric, the dressmaking, the handmade jewellery that’s produced in the glorious space, all the vintage treasure, the Edwardian pop art, the velvet, the silk, the sewing machines and the Victoriana.

BLUE ART LIST Press Release 14: JOHN LEE BIRD, BEFORE ENCORE 6…

johnleebird_header

John Lee Bird marks ten years of his before encore project with an exhibition of 36 new portraits documenting London’s mercurial creative counter-culture at 20th Century Theatre

before encore is an ongoing portraiture project in which seminal London artist John Lee Bird documents the influential performers, muses, designers, musicians, poets and artists who exist within the creative spaces between marginal and mainstream popular culture.

2016 sees before encore enter its tenth year and 14th-15th June sees a two day exhibition at London’s 20th Century Theatre of the latest 36 portraits representing a diverse subculture of London’s performance/club/queer/music DIY/art scenes.

johnleebird_flyer6

“It never occurred to me that before encore would still be ongoing after ten years, or that it would take on such a documentary importance in terms of recording what the outsider creative scene looked and felt like at different times. The whole project has gradually defined its own purpose, identity & relevance during the process of creating it, and that feels absolutely, perfectly appropriate given the subject matter,” says Bird.

The exhibition will be a riotous celebration of not only John Lee Bird’s work but also his subjects, with countless musicians & performers from the latest portraits taking the stage, as well as a number of surprise guests from previous series’ of before encore.

“I’ve painted many people who are now household names as part of before encore, but it has never been a predictive project. It’s never been a snapshot of the biggest deals at the time, but a representation of how the period felt – the energy, the direction, the possibilities – how that felt to me at the time, through the faces that were there. Yes, there are lots of performers, artists & musicians but there are also bar staff & club kids, because they were as much a part of how everything felt at that point in time.”

The exhibition, which is free and unticketed, runs from 6pm-11pm on Tuesday 14th June & from 12pm-11pm on Wednesday 15th with live performances from 7pm on both nights. Musicians & artists confirmed to perform include Madam, Mikkokoo, The Black Site, Catmilk, Chicken, Sam Amant, Bete Noire, Campbell L Sangster, Thom Shaw, Dale Cornish, Marisa Carnesky, The Budda Cakes, Mr Teds, Timberlina & Oozing Gloop as well as a number of surprise guest appearances.

About John Lee Bird
John Lee Bird’s work is defined by his distinctive use of line; influenced by pop art and 1950’s instruction and medical manuals yet entirely more detailed and personable. He uses diagrammatic line to make intensely human studies; whether the object be a portrait or a more abstract vision of matters of the human condition. He is best known for his ongoing iconic before encore portraiture project, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2016.  www.johnleebird.com

About 20th Century Theatre
The 20th Century Theatre is a beautiful Grade 2 listed English Heritage Building in the heart of vibrant Notting Hill with a rich connection to some of the most prominent musicians, authors, actors, playwrights and culture of the 20th Century.

BLUE ART PRESS RELEASE 12: Sometimes They Have Thorns…

cultivate_Thorns_april2016This week the now nomadic artist-run maximalist gallery thing that is Cultivate will head back to the Fount space and that beautiful railway arch by London Fields, Hackney, London E8…

On Tuesday morning, April 12th, a solo show of recent paintings from Sean Worrall called Sometimes They Have Thorns will open. The solo show will run for nine days with a late night viewing on Thursday evening, April 14th at 6pm until 9pm, all are welcome. The show will be open 11am until 6pm from April 12th until Wednesday April 20th

Sean will present a series of recent paintings, a series that started at the Reveal show and formed a big part of his #43 show that happened on the 43rd day of the year with that one day show on the street under a railway bridge, the series that continued at the recent Debaser show over at BSMTSpace and will continue once more with new work for this nine day solo show in the railway arch at Fount.

The gallery walls will be alive with thorny growth, leaves on canvas (although some see other things and talk of leafhearts and such). Expect thorns, pruning of growth, gardening, painting on canvas, on found things and for the last time this year the bigger canvas paintings will be on sale at no more than £43 each (there will also be smaller pieces painted on found recycled vinyl or pieces of reclaimed wood, expect work priced as low as £5).

The show will evolve through the nine days with Sean (and others) working at the space (or outside the space) during the period.

And as is tradition now with Sean’s solo shows, there will be a guest wall of artists invited to take part and make use of one wall in the space (Cultivate is about getting art and artists out there, artists coming together and doing it ourselves)

GUEST WALL ARTISTS: LYNNE BLACKBURN, QUIET BRITISH ACCENT, ROSSO, THIS ONE and…

And while Sometimes They Have Thorns is going on inside under the arch, outside in the yard we shall have an art mart, a small art fair….
Cultiartmart_april2016THE CULTIVATE SPRING ART MART: On the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 16th/17th April, Cultivate will present an outdoor market/art fair in the yard of Fount, (with gazebos, tables, paintings, prints, stalls and such), East London Prints will also be there over the weekend with their extensive collection of affordable prints.
Fount is under the railway, inside (and outside) an arch, right by London Fields, Netil Market and everything that goes on at Broadway Market at the weekend. You have art, food, drink, vintage treasure and entertainment everywhere….

The FOUNT space can be found under the railway arch at Westgate Street, London Fields, Hackney, London, E8 3RN

These days Cultivate is nomadic, Vyner Street is over now and we’re doing different things in different places.  In the next few months you can expect Cultivate events to happen on a boat on the Regent’s canal, in  amongst the glorious colour of a tailor’s shop in East London, in an open-air square at the foot of Tower Bridge, and just maybe in a conventional art gallery or two as well, oh and back at the Brick Lane Art Car Boot Fair on Sunday June 12th, always one of our favourite days of the year  Cultivate will be five this year, five years of doing it our way, thanks for being part of it….
