Ashes 57 Downtown57
October 22nd - Nov 12th 2010
Private View: Thursday, October 21st 2010 6-9PM
Ashes 57's work takes its roots in the buzz and lights of cities, urban landscapes and the mu- sic that accompanies them. Downtown57 is inspired by New York's early 80s cultural scene and Downtown81. The exhibition presents a series of black and white drawings that tell a fantastic journey through the 57 boroughs from Brooklyn to Manhattan, from Queens back to London; the artist looks for the one track which will make the world turn around.
Downtown57 is part of PUMA 365, a project that encourages collaborations with like-minded upcoming talents. Previous artists include Luke Monaghan, Yemi Bamiro, Nashmoney and the collective Girlcore.
