Nice bit of coverage of a the Mind The Gap piece in that was part of that Tooting Broadway show a couple of weeks ago from the Minesweeper Collective. Who are the Minesweeper Collective? A collective of artists and musicians based on an old Minesweeper on the Thames and, well, why not go see for yourselves That show was a real pleasure to take part in, good people with the right set of attitudes, shame it was an event marking the demise of yet another art space. There’s a whole bag load of Organ photos and words from the show here All about artists coming together and making things happen while we still can.
PLAY: A weekend group show, curated by Sean Worrall, will happen in a beautiful big empty shell of an East London warehouse right by London Fields, Hackney, London, E8 over the weekend of May 30th/31st. More soon.
A beautiful blank canvas of a space just waiting for an invited gathering of painters, sculptors, installation makers, maybe a performer or two and who knows what. There’s a pleasure in bringing pro-active energetic artists together, creating and exciting event and then inviting people to come along and engage with the selected art and artists and be part of the whole thing. For further news on this event, the artists, the people and such, tune in to my blog over on the Cultivate pages. it shall be exciting to spread out a little. All about artists coming together to make things happen
