Here’s some fresh Organ magazine coverage of Cultivate‘s Reveal show over in East London that we press released ahead of the rather busy event. A review of the opening night and a small feature on one of the artists involved. .

ORGAN THING: Reveal, An Art Show in a Railway Arch, the opening night reviewed… Reveal,  the show opened last Thursday evening in an East London railway arch, deliberately timed to happen as early in the year as possible, hopefully the first London art show of 2016, actually for once there was quite few things worth exploring on the first Thursday of the new year. Reveal happened at a space called Fount London, a white-walled railway arch right by London Fields over in Hackney, East London,  A show put together by read on

ORGAN THING: Megan Pickering, Will Anyone Re-blog This?  Megan Pickering is one of the more intriguing of the current crop of London-based artists. It isn’t easy to pin down what it was about the artist from Durham that first ignited curiosity and demanded we take a closer look? Was it the powerful sound of that film she… read on

Blue Art List No5: CULTIVATE REVEALS FIRST SHOW OF 2016

Reveal_jan2016Blue Art List No5:  CULTIVATE REVEALS FIRST SHOW OF 2016

Reveal will almost certainly be the first Cultivate event of 2016, although the opening night of Reveal isn’t until Thursday January 7th, so who knows, there may well be some Cultivation before that, we intend having another pro-active maximalist year of cultivation.

Reveal with take place at Fount London, a pristine white-walled space by London Fields. The address is Arches, 358-260, Westgate Street, London, E8 3RN

Reveal will open at 6pm on Thursday 7th January and run until 6pm on Sunday 11th January. (open 10am until 6pm from Friday 8th Jan).

For those who don’t know, Cultivate started life as a rather vocal artist run space back in 2011, for the first three and a bit years, Cultivate was very deliberately based right in the middle of the then East London art establishment that was Vyner Street. We enjoyed 112 shows and events during the a never-ever-closed three an a bit defiant years in the street. Vyner Street is pretty much no more (when we moved in there was 14 galleries or art spaces, last time we checked there was two hanging on). the buildings once alive with art have all fallen to the developers, some knocked down, some taken over, a once very exciting and rather unique street is, as far as art is concerned, pretty much no more. Cultivate spent 2015 moving about, shows and events in all kinds of places – great big East London warehouse shows, seaside shows, gallery shows, even a dog show…

Cultivate will continue with the nomadic takeover of interesting spaces big and small for their first event of 2016. Reveal will happen in the East London railway arch that is home to the recently opened Fount London complex.

Reveal will reveal new work from Cultivate founders Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey,

Reveal will also continue with the tradition of revealing fresh work from artists that currently excite us, including one or two who have never revealed themselves at Cultivate before. Expect a typically busy Cultivate group show and a long weekend of New Year artistic intent, expect cross-pollination, expect artists who don’t usually show with each other, expect painters jousting with performance, expect sculpture, print

Cecily

Cecily

Expect painting, sculpture, performance, art, artists and more on the opening Thursday night and throughout the weekend both inside and outside the white-walled railway arch of a Hackney gallery.

Fount is found over the road from Hackney’s ever popular Netil Market and a two minute walk from London Fields railway station, as well as the busy food-filled thing that is Broadway Market and London Fields itself.

More details of events and artists to be announced over the next couple of weeks via the Cultivate blog and the various social media platforms that we all know and love, there’s a Facebook event page here

Artists confirmed for Reveal so far include the extremely colourful media manipulator Cecily Baker, Deborah Griffin, Diane Goldie fresh from her triumph down in Leake Tunnel, Emma Harvey, John Lee Bird revealing his ongoing Before Encore, Megan Pickering, performance artist Marnie Scarlet, Sean Worrall, Skeleton Cardboard, black and white street artist ThisOne, more to be revealed in the coming days…
