A thought…

"I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me."

— Tracee Ellis Ross, in an interview for UPTOWN

So many things to see…

…so little time

so we checked out some of Giles’ new pieces down at the Louise Blouin Foundation; an exhibition of urban art for the Portobello Film Festival that included Joe Rush, Code fc, Teddy Baden Zeus, Sickboy, Wreckage International, Lucy Sparrow and Solo.

We also checked out Hang Up Gallery in Stoke Newington and their show with Mark Powell 

How was your August?

we were jealous of this lovely gallery’s summery location in the Mediterranean… 

The Last Supper is BACK!!

If you missed it the first time round, don’t make the same mistake again….

Following successful shows in both London and Los Angeles, Giles Walker has

chosen Cambridge as the next city in which to exhibit his Last Supper. A year in

the making this remarkable work is a fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen

mechanical figures who interact around a table. Simultaneously humorous and

disturbing The Last Supper quickly surpasses the audience’s initial interest in the

robotic elements of the piece and draws us into the questions it poses concerning

religious education and the eternal power struggle for the moral high ground.

Opening in July Giles is collaborating with three local partners who all share a

community driven agenda.

Jimmy’s Cambridge is the only emergency accommodation provider for the

homeless in Cambridge.

Changing Spaces is an artist run project negotiating empty premises as project and

exhibition spaces for contemporary visual art.

Origin8 is an events and corporate caterer committed to sourcing the very best in

produce from the Anglian area and providing superb food in a local, eco-friendly

and sustainable way.

The Last Supper’s first showing in Cambridge will include an invitation to the

homeless community to come and see the work and share a feast provided by

Origin8, in a location hosted by Changing Spaces, and with invaluable support

from Jimmy’s. In an atmosphere of austerity where those struggling to find a

foothold in society are often demonised there has never been a more important

time to bring together community minded organisations determined to make a

difference.

‘A Sinister Triumph’ LA Weekly.

‘Pushes Boundaries…Emotionally Evocative’ Huffington Post.

‘Not To Be Missed’ The Museum of Curiosity.
