BLUE ART LIST PR: Red, an art exhibition on-line…

Hot on the heels of Cultivate’s triumphant return to Dalston’s  beautiful basement gallery known as BSMT Space with the Fragile show two weeks ago, Cultivate brings you Red.


Opening on Monday February 27th at 6pm, Red will be another gathering of pro-active artists and another exercise in artist-led cross-pollination.

This time we Cultivate on line, sometimes we do it in formal galleries, or in warehouses or at dog shows or under railway bridges or in car parks at the seaside, this time we do it online. A group show featuring the art of 20 selected artists, selected via an on-line open call. Red goes live at 6pm (UK time) on Monday 27th February at www.cultivategallery.com and www.organthing.com.

onlineartculti_feb2017

Opening on Monday evening, Red will run on-line until, well until who knows when, maybe forever? 

RED will be an on-line exhibition. Red will feature the work of 20 selected artists. Submissions are being accepted now via www.cultivategallery.com. The show will go live on line on the Organ website and on the Cultivate website on February 27th and will run until the world ends (or we do).

The work will be of a red nature, the colour will hopefully unite the show, we’re exploring the submissions now, this is very much an experiment. More details about the open call via www.cultivategallery.com

“I’m still not sure how I feel about the notions of art on-line (I avoided instagram for ages and ages), but then that’s why we’re experimenting with it and debating it here at Cultivate. I look at the numbers of people around the world who view the features on gallery openings and exhibitions via both the Cultivate website and in much bigger numbers via the busy Organ website – for instance over eight thousand people viewed the photos (and words) from the Kembra Pfahler show at Emalin Gallery in East London when the images (and words) were posted on the Organ website.  Eight thousand viewers during the week the review went live on the Organ website back at the end of last year.  I very much doubt if anywhere near a thousand people actually physically went to the show when it was on.  My own art website has already been visited by people from New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Singapore, USA and more this morning, nobody living in Singapore can see my art on an East London gallery wall unless they look at photos of the show on-line.

On-line art can never be a substitute for seeing most people’s art in the flesh on a gallery wall (or a street wall, or hanging in a tree, or…), there is no substitute for seeing art right there in front of you living and breathing, right there in the flesh, alive, the texture, the size, the smell – however as artists, we surely can’t ignore the fact that most people see out art via computer screens can we? This surely has to be embraced doesn’t it? Surely we have to experiment with it? And so Red will open on-line next Monday on both the Cultivate and Organ websites, come and see if the experiment works”. (Sean Worrall)

The opening night of Red is on Monday 27th Feb, 6pm at (UK time) at www.cultivategallery.com and www.organthing.com.

PRESS RELEASE: Cultivate presents Fragile and more pro-active cross-pollination…

cult_fragile_feb2017

Cutivate returns once more to Dalston and that beautiful basement gallery known as BSMT Space for the third in a trilogy of artist-led group shows  .

Opening on Thursday February 9th at 6pm, Fragile will be another gathering of pro-active artists and another maximalist exercise in artist-led cross-pollination. A room alive with contemporary painters, street art flavours, performers, print makers and more….

Opening on Thursday evening and then a short sharp shock of a show through the weekend and closing on Sunday, no messing about, just artists, walls, people and….  Once more this is about taking art and artists out of those comfortable little boxes that the London art scene appears to need, mixing things up, messing with the rules, nothing fragile.

Last time show curators Emma Harvey and Sean Worrall invited a wallpaper printer (currently hanging in the V&A), alongside a street artist currently painting East London walls, a London dress-maker currently raging against London Fashion week, a contemporary painter currently exploring the view found through a circle, a performance artist freshly returned from her LA performance next to a pro-active artist still questioning the destruction of the mining communities, this time…. well come and see

Opening night is on Thursday 9th Feb, 6-9pm at BSMT Space, 5d Stoke Newington, Dalston (then open Fri, Sat, Sun February 10th – 12th, 11am until 6pm)

OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCES: Amy Kingsmill, Marnie Scarlet

Emma and I shall be pulling the  final bits of the line up together in the coming days, we like to hold back a little space for some spontaneous last minute gathering together of things like a banner or two from that Anti-Trump Woman’s March last week (have you got one? Did you see Cait’s, she’d call him what?). Expect a couple more names to be added to the Fragile list before the window closes.

BSMT SPACE is at 5d Stoke Newington Road, Dalston, London N16 8BH

There’s been something like 150 solo shows, group shows, events and more in the five years of cultivate now, but rather than celebrate the fifth birthday and all 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..

There’s lots more coverage via the Organ magazine pages as well as the Cultivate blogs.

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.

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….

Cultivate presents HARVEY & WORRALL at WALL & JONES…

wallandjones_may2016This week Cultivate continues roaming around and popping up in all kinds of interesting exciting alternative places and spaces. Following on from recent Cultivate shows at BSMT Space and that Fount railway arch adventure, as well as that 43 minute thing under the railway bridge, this week Cultivate will take over a treasure chest of a two floor space here in East London   Well not so much a take over as a fitting in alongside all the treasure that’s already in that wonderful space.

Wall and Jones is a former tailors shop on the main Hackney Road, London E2, (directly over the road from the Hackney City Farm on he boarders of Broadway Market and Columbia Road Flower Market). 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. Come find paintings hanging in and around the two floors of treasure next weekend.

“We’re rather excited about this one, something a little different rather than another white wall…The place has been exciting us both for months we’ve been staring through the windows magpie-like on our way past, the fabrics, the colours, the glorious clutter, we’re excited to have this chance to be showing work here amongst all the beauty”

Harvey & Worrall will open at Wall & Jones, 340 Hackney Road, London, E2, on Friday 27th May for an evening preview (6pm until 8pm) and then be in the space on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May from 11am until 6pm

Sean Worrall, Art Car Boot Fair (2014)

Cultivate at the 2016 BRICK LANE ART CAR BOOT FAIR

Once again Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey (Cultivate founders) will be joined by a couple of selected guest artists in out “boot” at one of the art year’s most exciting London events.

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).

The 2016 ART CAR BOOT FAIR takes place in BRICK LANE on Sunday June 12th. More news soon
