Stolen planks from under the bourgeois phalanx
Stolen planks from under the bourgeois phalanx is an exhibition that takes its title from a letter by the artist Clifford Rowe, published in the 1956 art journal Materialism. The letter marks a claim for a stark demarcation of cultural production under Socialist and Capitalist ideologies. The exhibition includes a selection of Rowe’s paintings, drawings and sketches produced between the 1930s and 1970s. These are accompanied by a video installation of a full reading of Bertrand Russell’s Power: A New Social Analysis.
In the spirit of the Everyman Prints, an AIA initiative to mass-produce and cheaply distribute prints, LGP will be bulk printing selected artworks which will be freely available from the gallery during the exhibition period.
Stolen planks from under the bourgeois phalanx is dedicated to David Bainbridge 1941–2013.
