‘Infinitas Gracias’ will explore the reaction of individuals at the moment of crisis in which their strength of faith comes into play. The profound influence of these vernacular paintings, and the artists and individuals who painted them, can be seen in the work of such figures as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, who were avid collectors. The contemporary legacy of the votive ritual will be present in the exhibition through a wall covered with modern-day offerings from one church in Guanajuato: a paper shower of letters, certificates, photographs, clothing and flowers, through which the tradition of votive offering continues today. The sanctuaries at Guanajuato and Real de Catorce remain centres of annual pilgrimage, attracting thousands of people to thank and celebrate their chosen saints.

Catch it after work as today they close late.

TFL opened its Lost Property Office to KK Outlet who have curated a unique exhibition of art that was left unclaimed on London’s Tubes, buses, Overground trains, Black Cabs.

This forgotten collection features creations from nameless artists; the work ranges from whole portfolios to carefully crafted drawings, paintings and photographs.The anonymous nature of the work invites a creative interpretation from the viewer of the content and inspiration behind the work. Who were these creators? What were they trying to communicate and most importantly do they have any talent?

KK Outlet is inviting the public to cast their critical eye over this collection, discover an unsung artistic talent or even reclaim a lost masterpiece that was left on the TFL network.

A unique collection of art and performance is hidden away amongst the corridors and chambers of this surreal Gallery. Step into the Labyrinth to engage not only with works of art but also with a rare piece of architecture that would otherwise be cut off from public access. An 1850’s barn forms the structure which governs the route. Those who venture inside have only the transformed space to guide them.

A retreat from the chaos of the city; a place for introspection and investigation – visitors can find refuge in the space, or choose to be challenged by it.

Works of art including contemporary dance, film, theatre and sculpture lie hidden within the Labyrinth,waiting to be discovered.

The King & The Minotaur has been created by Wignall & Moore.

Exhibition launches on 8th April 2011.
