About

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS (DAY OF THE DEAD @ CULTIVATE VYNER STREET First Thursday evening down Vyner Street inside and outside Cultivate - a celebration of the celebration, come join in... Opening at 6pm on Thursday 1st November and running throughout the weekend, usual gallery opening times of 11.30am until 6pm - Friday - Sunday The Day of The Dead at Cultivate and frankly we have no idea what will happen or who will turn up. Told you about how it all came about and the zombie checkpoints and all that already, forget that, that's last week's news, this week's news come wrapped in bunches of plastic marigolds. Actually we do have an idea, in our heads the celebration will be alive with colour, with art, alive with Mexican flavours, with traditional Day of The Dead imagery interpreted by invited artists such as CARRIE REICHARDT, TONY LEE, EMMA HARVEY, JULIETA HERNANDEZ ADAME, SEAN WORRALL, ROBERT FORD and well, we'll see who else turns up, artists are being invited and others encourage to get in touch — not everything has to be carefully planned to the last inch of controlled detail, art events can be spontaneous can't they? The invites are out, artists are out gathering colour and we look forward to a long weekend of celebration and colour on our corner… We're not trying to recreate an accurate authentic reconstruction of a Mexican Day of the Dead celebration, we're just celebrating the celebration in our on cross-pollinating way. Artists who wish to join in should make contact via the gallery website
