Exhibition: Phantasmagoria – PV Thursday 9th Feb 6-9pm Runs from 9th -26th Feb.
Where: Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery, Stour Rd, Fish Island, Hackney Wick, E3 2NT
We would like to make you aware of this exiting exhibition soon to be reveled in East London. Phantasmagoria is a group exhibition featuring the work of some prominent artists and illustrators. PV Thursday 9th Feb 6-9pm. Runs from 9th -26th Feb.
Who is involved?
Andrew James, James Unsworth, Anwot, Isaac Cordal, Martin Wollerstam, Jon Burgerman, Shin Tanaka, Rebecca Strickson, David Shillinglaw, Agent Provocateur, Todd Ryan White, Roman Klonek, Otto Schade, Dave Anderson and Boicut.
What’s it about?
Phantasmagoria will be themed around the ongoing cycles of sub-cultures and counter cultures, their art, and it’s eventual fuelling of canons of mass assimilation by fashion and media to the point of vulgarity and its serendipitous decaying of objective and social meaning in tribal and underground arts.
In 1990 a relatively unknown Canadian essayist Gail Faurschou wrote about fashion’s “ingenious strategy of expansion.” As more artistic raw material that challenges corporate consumerism is made, the more marketable material corporations have to advertise its products. This systematic diffusion of any opposition continues to effectively dissolve and quash any of its subject’s capacity for growth and maturity.
Please contact email@example.com for more info about Phantasmagoria.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Exhibition: Ghosts of Gone Birds – Last few days – Closes 23rd Nov. – Rochelle School, Arnold Circus, Shoreditch, London E2 7ES
Creature finally made it down to the much praised Ghosts of Gone Birds exhibition on Thursday. Here is some of our favourite bits including the King Island Emu by Harriet Mead (Above), a room full of extinct bird paintings by Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman (below) and a bird body outline filled with graphic images and shotgun cartridges, (bottom – sorry but we did not get the artists name).
We highly recommend checking this show out. It’s is now the last few days and closes on 23rd Nov so get your skates on.
Project: The Flamingo Arts Project
Flamingo, one of Creature’s absolute favourite magazines for illustration, arts and music, is launching it’s first group illustration show at Betty’s Coffee, Kingsland Road, on Friday 26th August. Nine super-talented illustrators, all past contributors to the magazine, have been chosen for their shamelessly bold, graphic style.
The Flamingo Arts Project is a brand new venture, aiming to showcase work by the best emerging artists, and to promote illustration within the wider arts community through an eclectic programme of workshops, exhibitions and discussions. Friday’s show is set to be the first of many, so watch this space!
With commissions from the likes of YCN, inkygoodness and House of Holland under their belts, this is the first time this dynamic group of illustrators will be exhibiting their own self-initiated work to the public. So who are they? Maggie Li, Hattie Stewart, Hayley Warnham, Joey Dean, Donya Todd, Jo Cheung, Jen Bailey, Shaun Lynch, and last but certainly not least, Emma Brown.
Everyone’s invited to the Private View on Thursday 25th August from 6pm for a beer, a chat with the artists, and of course a preview of the original artwork on show. Don’t be shy, apparently they’re all very nice! If you want to pop along, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’ll find Betty’s Coffee, Dalston’s newest independent coffee house and gallery space, at 510b Kingsland Road, London. The exhibition runs from 26th August until 17th September 2011.
