Eastside Projects

LAB @ Ithuba Gallery, Mar 13 – Apr 2

13 March 2015

Three-part art exhibition LAB is bringing together three independent artist-run UK spaces work with Johannesburg’s Ithuba Arts Gallery.

The gallery acts as a sort of halfway between the British and South African visual art scenes, and the show explores the possibilities of working across the two cultures. The project began when the British Council Connect ZA invited the director of Ithuba Arts Gallery to visit the UK, researching the visual arts there and establishing contact with independent or artist-run spaces.

The result, based on the gallery director’s selection, was a three-part show with London’s AutoItalia SouthEast and Banner Repeater, as well as Birmingham’s Eastside Projects. The spaces then made the journey to South Africa, to become acquainted with both commercial and independent spaces and artists there.

Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski have their own show at Evelyn Yard.

Outside the city, Micachu & the Shapes are putting on their GOOD BAD HAPPY SAD performance at DIY theatre and art space Cube Cinema in Bristol, while London spaces Banner Repeater and Auto Italia, as well as Birmingham’s Eastside Projects, are collaborating in a UK/South Africa exhibition at Johannesberg’s Ithuba Arts Gallery, which also includes CUSS Group.

Vandalism and Art @ SLG, Jul 22

21 July 2014

South London Gallery is hosting a panel discussion titled Vandalism & Art with Simon and Tom Bloor on July 22, 7pm at their Clore Studio space.

The brother-duo, responsible for the creation of Birmingham’s Eastside Projects, works in a range of media, including drawing, sculpture and installation, bringing their eclectic style to everything from solo exhibitions to public projects.

For the panel discussion (chaired by Jo Melvin), the Bloors will explore the ideas they developed during their residency at Flat Time House (and where they now have an exhibition), also welcoming curator Jes Fernie, artist Nils Norman and art historian Richard Clay, into a conversation about vandalism, public art and the art of appropriation.

See the South London Gallery’s event page for details. **
