when i was in london last time, i popped along to help out at an opening for the east end arts club in shoreditch. EEAC are as close to an ARI as london has right now and it’s such a relief to go to a gallery where things are not in absolutely pristine order. i like my regularity, but please give me something that’s a little loose every now and again too. i know that sounds like a backhanded compliment to helen and the gang, but i promise, it’s all love.
anyway, their next project is about the alphabet.
anyone that has ever been within coo-ee of the east end should have a relationship with the alphabet. between eine’s shutter door alphabet series, the myriad of art spaces, graphic and/or design studios and book shops, the east end loves its letters.
so, obviously it makes sense for the east end arts club to have a group exhibition about those 26 adorable figures. featuring 26 artists with all kinds of interpretations of the alphabet, ‘said, why eggs?‘ is going to be ace. there’ll be an installation by Swifty, which should be interesting, and a bunch of lovely LtdEd prints on sale too. [i’m lookin’ at you, mr gower…].
