Some art, an odd location and an overbearing curatorial strategy. Wrong, but fun, yeah?

Also, the usual drinks and whatnot at the opening.

This is a group show and a collaboration between friends, so prepare yourselves for a whole G A M U T of stuff that you probably wouldn't want on your dining room wall.

Artists include: Mark Gubb, Adam Crosland, Hannah Lees, Jack Lavender, Polly Read, Craig 'Questions' Scott and Dan Singer (of Road Kill fame), Paul Hazelton, Marco Palmieri, Cheryl Cole/Tweedy, Jeff Tweedy, Jacobly James John Marley, Charles Dickens, and the entire cast of High School Musical 2.

a snippet from the press release:

"...Looking at the art in groups of five thousand and three, wavering over the icy grit locket folders, muscling in on the grave distinct figures and trip-fever blue (blue is light that glows, blows the blue wind), you sense its character is so deep that, at that very moment, Allah (everything combined) reaches its loving arms to welcome you to art. You will find the phligma of beauty and the answer specified, and influences taken from Gandhi, Hitler, Jude Law, Simon and Garfunkel, Madam Twanky, and many other misrepresented philosophers who speak to you in a profound whisper. Just tell yourself one day, if you will, tell it good massive one to yourself..."

Are your whistles wet?
