Save Event: Credit Where Credits Due

People who have saved this event:



Underneath the powerful Portland stone build, beneath the opulence of the baroque exterior and below the grand corporate show rooms lies the Shoreditch Town Hall Basement, the location for the exhibition ‘Credit were Credit is Due' which is running from May 28th to May 31st. Here the title acts as the soul denominator for the twenty four artist group show which is a hap hazard collection of practises amongst passageways. From the basement the above unified aesthetic of stability has been compromised for individual expression. The work on show is in constant contention with the raw uncontrollable ramblings of an exhibition space constructed of bold aesthetics which bursts through labyrinths and flows down tunnels. The response to the space in itself is guaranteed to be somewhat erratic, there is no discerning discipline with which to tackle either the physical problematic of the site or that of the concept of the show itself. ‘Credit Were Credit is Due' is a mesh of audio works, drawing, film, painting, sculpture and installation. A living exhibition rejected by the white cube which has spilled beneath the streets and dynamically enmeshed in this shadowy environ. This location is itself an echo of the times.
