The strength of London art scene and its richness is one of the reasons why I settled exactly here. You can see a new show almost every day of the year. You can go to West, North, South London to see artists from across the globe. Today I actually want to write about the art scene in East London, where one of the busiest “gallery streets” is located. Of course it is The Vyner Street. Vyner Street is a place where in one night, you can visit four, five, six or even seven new shows! If that’s what you are planning to do this special “First Thursday” I’ll be seing you. I’ll be in Cultivate Gallery exhibiting in a group show called “It’s Green.” Here is a facebook event with details.
These green artists will be exhibiting : ALKE SCHMIDT, ANDREA ARTZ, ANNA PIENIAZEK, BELLE ROBINSON, CLAIRE JACKSON, FROSO PAPADIMITRIOU, GARETH MORGAN, HILARY BARRY, JOHNNY DOE, JULIE CAVES, KATE LEPPER, KATE WARDINGLEY, KIRSTY GREENWOOD, LAURA IOSIFESCU, LEWIS BANISTER, MADELEINE STRINDBERG, MARK WORRALL, MYDOGSIGHS, NORIKO MICHIGAMI, RUTH PHILO, SEAN WORRALL, SILVIA KRUPINSKA, STEVEN RAWLINGS, TIM GOFFE and TOM BANKS.
The exhibition will be opening at 6pm on First Thursday, March 1st, and then running through to March 14th. Cultivate is open Thursday through to Sunday, 11.30am until 6pm (or by appointment).
Here is a pre-view of my sculpture, installed in the space differently but in the same spirit. “Green Moon Transition” sculpture made from recycled tennis balls:
I hope you can come. See you there! Silvia.
