WHAT TIME IS IT? TEN : 2
The experiment that was February’s TEN show seemed to go well. Well we were, on the whole, pleased with how it looked and worked, pleased with how people reacted to the gallery being split into ten sections and pleased with the way the ten artists used their ten spaces. So we’re going to do it again in March (and maybe April as well)
The idea is simple, we split out white walls into ten with the help of a roll of black tape. Each artist gets a wall space three metres high and just over one metre wide to fill in any way they wish. Last time some artists filled their spaces with just a couple of big pieces, others went minimal, some busy with lots of affordable smaller pieces, we had a wall installation in the form of just one word painted directly on to the wall
TEN : 2 will open on Thursday evening March 21st (hang on Wednesday 20th) and run until end of day Tuesday 26th. We invite London area artists to come get involved, come and excite us enough to make us want to offer you one of the ten places… get in touch via our e.mail address for more details info at cultivatevynerstreet dot com
RED REVISED – Eighteen months on from the original takeover of our corner space, smack bang in the middle of Vyner Street and all that the street stands for, eighteen months on from the night of the naked red men, the rush to get the door open and then our first formal group show, Red… Eighteen months on we shall revisit the red theme. and in doing so, exam what was originally only going to be a six month artist-run exploration of things from a gallery-person’s point of view via the full time running of a space right in the centre of things.
RED REVISED, our 57th Cultivate event, bookends eighteen months (one more year than expected) in our Vyner Street space rather nicely…
RED REVISED will be a two week group show. For a second time we will fill our walls and plinths with art of a predominantly red nature, a diverse show and a busy space united in its redness.
RED REVISED will open on the evening of Thursday March 28th, with a second late night evening opening for April First Thursday (4th April). Usual gallery open times during the day (11.30am – 6pm Thursday to Sunday, by appointment, Monday – Wednesday).
We once again invite artists to submit art of a red nature, we envisage a room alive with vivid red art, we invite submissions from contemporary painters, small scale sculptors, street artists, print makers, maybe a photographer or two, anyone who thinks they have something to offer the show…. Artists who wish to get involved should make contact for more details… info at cultivatevynerstreet dot com
