About

As part of Idea Generation's current exhibition — Ray Lowry: London Calling - a whole host of artists, performers, writers and general creatives were invited to donate a work, using the London Calling sleeve as a starting point. The results are now on display alongside a large collection of Ray's work in the gallery and they are all available to buy — going under the hammer in aid of the Ray Lowry Foundation, which financially assists budding art students. Silent bids are now being taken on all guest contributions, including those by more established names alongside fresh, new talent. The silent auction will close on Thursday 1st July, and will culminate in a closing party to which you are exclusively invited. Clash roadie Johnny Green will be treat us to reading from his books and exhibiting artist Anat Ben-David will be doing a live performance piece. And…you can of course jostle in on the bidding action live. The evenings events will coincide with Whitechapel Gallery's First Thursday initiative, so why not make a night of it and visit the whole host of galleries that Redchurch Street and Shoreditch has tooffer, as all spaces keep their doors open late to all. Request a full auction catalogue, guest list for the live event on the 1st July or place a silent bid by emailing rachel.wood@ideageneration.co.uk
