About

Little Benefits is a ten day group show of work at our ever evolving gallery space right in the middle of the East of London street that in Vyner Street. The gallery walls will be packed with smaller pieces of exciting (and affordable) art from a whole host of artists. Nothing bigger that 30cm x 40cm, nothing priced at more than £100 ARTISTS FULLY CONFIRMED SO FAR: ANDREW HARRISON, BEX MASSEY, BRUCE LOVELOCK, CLIVE HANZ HANC...OCK, CONSUELO GIORGI, DARREN MacPHERSON, ELECTRA COSTA, ELLIE GREEN, EMILY SPENCE, EMMA HARVEY, FOX IRVINE, JEAN-PIERRE ROFFI, JULIA ROACH, KRISTIN ENDSLEY, LINDA LENCOVIC, LISA McKENDRICK, MELANIE KING, PATRICK MORRISSEY, PAULA MacARTHUR, SEAN WORRALL, SIMON MACK, TABITHA KNIGHT, TAHIRA BEGUM, TINSEL EDWARDS, TWINKLE TROUGHTON, YULIA ROBINSON.... More being confirmed today... From the opening Thursday night of Little Benefits on October 20th until close on Sunday October 30th we want the pack our walls with a very busy vibrant exciting group show of smaller affordable pieces of work. No artist will be showing more than five pieces, so expect lots of variety, lots of colour (a few black and white pieces of colour). Expect paintings, drawings, prints, photography, three dimensional wall pieces, expect street art, fine art, contemporary art, contradictory art, expect boldness, subtlety, brightness, refinement, expect ever evolving walls as new pieces come in over the ten days (artists, get in touch) This is a benefit show for the gallery space, it is to run from Oct 20th to Oct 30th 2011, this is about keeping Cultivate going on our terms ... We are now in our second month in the Cultivate gallery space. As you may or may not already know, this is a six month project (that may just evolve to be something longer term if we can survive?). We're a small group of artists doing it ourselves rather than just accepting the London gallery system and moaning about the way it all works. Cultivate is about trying to do things just a little differently while also trying to understand things from the gallery point of view. Little Benefits will be our sixth busy show in the excellently situated space right in the middle of one of the busiest art streets in East London. . We're a small group of artists doing all this DIY gallery running business ourselves, we don't have any funding or backing. The reality is we have to pay the rent cheque at the end of each month. It will be tough to survive the winter months, it is important that we do survive right in the middle of what has become the establishment of Vyner Street, that we challenge things just a little rather than just accepting the way the galleries run things. This show is about artists benefiting us and helping us survive, about benefiting themselves by showing work in out space and about benefiting you with some fine pieces of carefully selected art for you to enjoy.
