Cultivate returns once more to Dalston and that beautiful basement gallery known as BSMT Space .
Another gathering of pro-active artists and another maximalist exercise in artist-led cross-pollination. A room alive with contemporary painters, so-called street artists, performers, print makers and more.... Watch this space.... Opening on Thursday evening and then a short sharp shock of a show through the weekend and closing on Sunday, no messing about, just artists, walls, people and.... Once more this is about taking art and artists out of those comfortable little boxes that the London art scene appears to need, mixing things up, messing with the rules, nothing fragile.
Last time show curators Emma Harvey and Sean Worrall invited a wallpaper printer (currently hanging in the V&A), alongside a street artist currently painting East London walls, a London dress-maker currently raging against London Fashion week, a contemporary painter currently exploring the view found through a circle, a performance artist freshly returned from her LA performance next to a pro-active artist still questioning the destruction of the mining communities, this time.... well come and see
Opening night is on Thursday 9th Feb, 6-9pm at BSMT Space, 5d Stoke Newington, Dalston (then open Fri, Sat, Sun 11am until 6pm)

Emma and I shall be pulling the final bits of the line up together in the coming days, we like to hold back a little space for some spontaneous last minute gathering together of things like a banner or two from that Anti-Trump Woman’s March last week (have you got one?). Expect a couple more names to be added to the Fragile before the window closes.
