A quick update from the middle of Vyner Street, the street that is currently home to Cultivate…. We’re in the middle of EMMA HARVEY‘s solo show,  originally schedules for just one week, kind of needed to breathe a little more though. FLESHED will now run for another week.  As a result the YES I KNOW WHERE BISTROTHEQUE IS group show will now open on First Thursday October 3rd and run until October 15th, before a the second solo show from one of our regular Cultivate artists hits our (almost) white walls GARETH MORGAN‘s solo show PRISM will open at Cultivate on October 17th…

YES, I KNOW WHERE BISTROTECHQUE IS – Opening night: (First) Thursday 3rd October, then from: Friday 4th – 15th October 2013

A two week long text based art show, we would like a room full of text-based art, words, letter forms, type, typography, wordplay, pop art, we’d like a wordy room taken wherever you take it, where are you going to take it? We will be picky, we will want it to be right, you London-area artists and designers are invited to submit work and come get involved…



The title, a (slightly tongue in cheek) comment on the hidden galleries, clubs, restaurants  and spaces in and around the East London art district of Vyner Street, the big galleries that leave you feeling a little unwelcome, the uber-fashionable eating establishments that are too cool for signs, the slightly elitist this isn’t for the likes of you those big black always closed signless gallery doors, or the eternal question asked on our open-door corner “excuse me, do you know where Bistrotechque is?” – a question we’ve been answering dozens of times every week here at Cultivate.

And so, for two weeks, we decided we’d answer the question with a smile and  big sign outside, and at the same time, inside the gallery, we shall celebrate the art of words, print, letter forms, headlines and such.

For full information on how to submit work, please send an e.mail to and we shall send you full details on how to submit and how it all works…
