Be ready for what should be another good show by the folks at Hang-Up in Shoreditch. They are presenting again Alex Daw whose last year show sold out. This year the second solo entitled Proper-Gander in a rather unusual subterranean members club in the city called Eight in a show opening on the 6th December.
Mark the 6th December in your diaries for a rather special and very different art experience where will be presenting the second solo show from contemporary artist and maker Alex Daw
Daw’s 2010 exhibition with Wieden + Kennedy was a sell-out establishing him a client base in the UK, Europe and the US; in addition he has had work commissioned by Diesel, Ralph Lauren, POP magazine, and Georgina Goodman.
The exhibition will be held in collaboration with Eight an exclusive members club located on the historic Change Alley in the City of London.
Sick of the generic, often banal gallery experience; Daw is attempting to shift into more site specific venues transforming the luxurious confines of the Eight Club into a subterranean nerve centre housed deep within the city walls. This will be home to a plethora of Dawsâ€™ artwork from traditional 2-d works on paper and oil paintings, to carved magazines, moving image and performance installation.
Entitled ‘Proper-Gander’ the exhibition explores ways of seeing, looking at and receiving ‘culture’, visually, audibly or otherwise. Playing with satire, art history and contemporary culture, the exhibition aims to question existing ideas and art forms, as well as commenting on the current trend of daily mega brand, brainwashing propaganda via television, films, advertisements and the internet.
The Private view and artists reception is from 7pm on 6th December and promises to be a special event, unlike anything seen before, with live art, performance and installation work, this will be a truly unique exhibition.
Music on the night will be supplied by Rudi Zygadlo “one of the key players in the future of electronica….” – CLASH MAGAZINE.
There is limited space. Early RSVP is essential. Click this link for further details.
