Nicholas Serotaâ€™s recent comments that the government’s funding cuts will cause an ‘arts blitzkrieg’ have inspired Transition Gallery to stage ART BLITZ, a fundraising event which references and updates the confrontational politics and unique style of the 1980s.
The call to arms for ART BLITZ has been phenomenal with artists including Yinka Shonibare, Clunie Reid, David Blandy, Stella Vine, Phillip Allen, Sigrid Holmwood, Rose Wylie, Paul Housley, Eleanor Moreton, Tom Hunter, Laura Oldfield Ford, Emma Talbot, Jessica Voorsanger and Damian & Delaine Le Bas donating work to the auction and ARTY DIP.
Auction night at Transition will have cocktails, music and a performance by Dominic Allan … so dress to impress.
Much of the work has been produced specially for ART BLITZ and this will be a rare chance to purchase art by influential contemporary artists whilst supporting the work of one of Londonâ€™s most important artist-run spaces. (Transition)
