POPular GGT @ Subway Gallery / until 25th May 2013


Open: Monday to Saturday 11:00 – 19:00

@ Kiosk 1, Joe Strummer Subway, Edgware Road / Harrow Road, London W2 1DX

Free entry

The Subway Gallery was born during 2006 and is situated below the Edgware Road / Harrow Road crossing in a subway underneath landmarks including Paddington Green, Marylebone flyover and the Metropole Hilton Hotel. Conceived by artist Robert Gordon McHarg III, the space is a 1960s kiosk with glass walls which creates a unique showcase for art, interacting naturally with passers by, visitors and the community.

POPular is GGT’s first solo exhibition in the UK. GGT’s artistic journey began in 1990 as an underground cartoonist in Milan, his colourful and ironically subversive work embraces all areas of the visual arts. His style is simple and direct, based on the use of solid colours, outlined by bold sharp lines.

Nobuyoshi Araki @ Michael Hoppen Gallery / until 8th June 2013


Monday-Friday: 10:30 – 18:00
Saturday: 10:30 – 17:00

@ Michael Hoppen Gallery, 3 Jubilee Place, London SW3 3TD

Free entry

In continuing our exploration and presentation of important Japanese photography, Michael Hoppen Gallery will this year stage major solo shows of two of its grand masters: Nobuyoshi Araki and later in the year, Miyako Ishiuchi. Each an artist with a unique vision and aesthetic, both producing highly charged work in examining the sensitive subjects of that society.

Araki is the king of provocation. In a very particular – and arguably peculiar – way he has made the subject his own. And here we celebrate those images from his most controversial body of work, Kinbaku, the Japanese art of bondage. Kinbaku-bi meaning literally the beauty of tight binding. And yes, though strong and offensive to some, disturbing to others, the pictures are often beautiful.

Satdeep Grewal’s work draws from scientific imagery and mathematics. Grewal uses abstract forms and tactile surfaces to bring out the chaos and fluidity embedded in these supposedly objective, rigid ways of viewing the world. This debut exhibition marks Satdeep Grewal’s emergence onto the scene as a multi-disciplinary artist, who works in mixed media, paint and sculpture.

Save Southbank skate park – sign the petition

Professional skateboarders rely on Southbank to practice. As well as being a mecca for skateboarders all over the world this is a very important place for many people not to mention the added value the park and professionals bring in terms of tourism.

The proposal to move the skate park means it is not regarded as equally important as the the other cultural facilities at Southbank and it shows they are being marginalised and it proves that Southbank strategy is elitist and not serving local people.

Many young local people start skating here, it is a social meeting place as well as a place for sport and artistic talent.

Sign the petition to let the people in charge know how you feel.
