Kind of Flossy @ Assembly Point, Nov 3 – Dec 10

31 October 2016

The Kind of Flossy group exhibition is on at London’s Assembly Point, opening November 3 and running to December 10.

Curated by C.R.E.A.M., the show features work by London-based artists Evan Ifekoya, Adam Saad,  and Zadie Xa, and looks at the use of visibility as a mode of resistance. Exploring the space of both spectacle as well as refusal, the exhibition “seeks to meditate upon questions of lived politics in the context of exploitation, appropriation and erasure within visual culture.”

C.R.E.A.M. is a curatorial initiative organised by Taylor Le Melle and Imran Perretta bringing artists, writers and community organizers together to problematize tokenism and explore possibilities beyond the institution.

See C.R.E.A.M.’s website for more details.**

1 September 2016

Majed Aslam and Imran Perretta are presenting their two person exhibition it wasn’t a crash, in the usual sense at London’s Arcadia Missa, opening on September 2 and running to September 24.

The event is curated by C.R.E.A.M., and is the first of a new initiative by Taylor Le Melle and Perretta, which will include a text by Le Melle, as well as an afterparty to launch the new curatorial project with DJs @cruise_control, ORETHA and Perretta himself.

Both London-based artists work across a variety of platforms, from video to installation and performance. Aslam recently showed ‘Its Pretty Hard To Experience Full On Ego Death With a Low Recreational Dose (2015) at Helsinki’s Sorbus Gallery. Perretta recently performed ‘Pale News‘ (2016) at the Victoria Bandstand, an offsite location for London’s Chisenhale Gallery. Le Melle is a curator based in London who previously put on Citizen (2016), an evening of multi-media work at the Chisenhale Dance studio.
