Any recommendations?

 

 

Just saw this on Facebook, will definitely give it a look in on my next free weekend.

This summer, Somerset House is proud to present Return of the Rudeboy, an original exhibition created and curated by prolific photographer and filmmaker for music’s most wanted Dean Chalkley and fashion-industry favourite creative director Harris Elliott, which showcases a sartorial subculture through a series of portraits, installations and set pieces.  Over the course of the past year the duo has photographed over 60 sharply dressed individuals from across the UK, all of whom embody the essence of what it is to be a Rudeboy (or Rudie) in the 21st century, to document the life, style and attitude of this growing urban group.  The curated collection of images shows the subjects presenting their pure and singular sartorial swagger in locations linked to the Rudeboy lifestyle, whether it be on the streets of Shoreditch or Savile Row.

Don't know anything about art really but been spending a bit of p on a few paintings recently as it goes. Owning nice paintings is properly satisfying. It's weird to explain.

Anyone interested checkout Londonart.co.uk

I just browse artists and cop shit that I like and can afford. These things can end up being a very good investment as well. They look awesome though.

Art galleries are cool. Ain't been to one in a bit actually. Last one was Goldie's. Decent artist that bloke. Didn't even know he painted. Quite unique work.

Steve Mcqueen has a free exhibition ending next Saturday

http://www.timeout.com/london/art/steve-mcqueen

 

The directors of Thomas Dane Gallery are pleased to announce our third solo exhibition of British artist and filmmaker, Steve McQueen, which marks the tenth anniversary of the gallery.

 

For this exhibition, McQueen will present two new works. The first, entitled Ashes, 2014, is installed as an immersive projection with sound.  It was shot on Super8 film with a haunting verbal soundtrack, recently recorded in Grenada.  Much of the footage dates from 2002 and was taken by the legendary cinematographer, Robbie Muller. The deceptively simple film was commissioned by Espace Louis Vuitton, Tokyo and shown there earlier this year. At No. 11, we will be showing an entirely sculptural installation 'Broken Column', which acts as a pendant to 'Ashes'.

 

Over the last twenty years McQueen has been the author of some of the most seminal works of the moving image designed for gallery-based presentation, as well as three films for cinematic release, Hunger (2008), Shame (2010) and 12 Years a Slave (2013). In this new exhibition, the artist's signature is evident, yet he further extends the range of his enquiry into the image and the object. His work hovers between the specific and the universal, the literal and the abstract, evading definition and multiplying experiential and interpretive possibilities.  Certain works stem from McQueen's unflinching observation of the self - sometimes with ambiguous carnal undertones. Others drawn from a potent, at times bleak, political consciousness, which addresses specific historical moments.  This new exhibition brings together these and other formal and conceptual strands of McQueen's work.
