About

7-10pm on Friday 14th October, all welcome

Exhibition will be open daily until 31st October 9am-5pm, free entry.

They say home is where the heart is, but in our case, home is where the art is. Well this may have been the case a while back in Hackney Wick, but these days the sights of cranes, bulldozers, developers and hoardings seem to have replaced the now lesser spotted artist.

This October 14th at Stour Space, Aida Wilde will once again assemble the ‘Lunatics’ from the recent takeover of the Lord Napier pub (Hackney Wicked 2016), bringing you an immersive, visual and historical experience. By sharing personal photos and archival images and footage with us, the local people of The Wick, Hackney WickED and Save Hackney Wick have contributed to what promises not to be just anothergallery show but an insight into this unique community past and present.

For at least a decade, the urban art landscape of the Wick has shaped and developed the aesthetic of this unique pocket of East London. Save Yourselves celebrates the art and the artists who have personal and emotional connections to the area. Many of these artists have gone on to become some of the most prolific street artists of our time. As most buildings are doomed for demolition, subsequently so is the rich heritage of urban art in East London. Is there now anything left to Save, apart from Ourselves?

Exhibiting along with the ‘Lunatics’ will be the launch of the printed posters of Sisters In Print. Sisters In Print is a collective of opinionated sixteen national and international female artists, who share the love of print and print making. Aida Wilde invited the individuals to participate in the project last year, where they were placed in collaboration with a partner that they may or not have known previously. The prints produced for the show are all printed in Aida’s studio in the heart of Hackney Wick.

Join us to commiserate, commemorate and celebrate what has been, is, and might be, from a community in mourning.
