Ash Ferlito @ White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, Oct 6 – Oct 31

5 October 2016

Ash Ferlito is presenting solo exhibition Coming in Hot at London’s White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, opening October 6 running through October 31.

The exhibition — which also comes recommended as part of this week’s Frieze 2016 offsite + fringe events — presents new paintings, sculptural and video works by the New York-based artist that “transmit humour and pathos in equal parts”. The materials shift and respond to ideas and their environment, with “the novelty of new materials” providing greater freedom for Ferlito.

The thematic undertones of the artist’s work — who also took part in Guccivuitton (since renamed Versace Versace Versace)’s The Christmas Show in Miami last year — are diaristic in form but not insular enough to close the work off from the viewer. There is always plenty of space for the onlooker to have freedom to interpret the work as they please.

The opening includes DJ sets from Bézier, Honey Soundsystem, and SF.

John Walter @ White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, Sep 29

28 September 2015

White Cubicle Toilet Gallery opens its seventh exhibition with Courtship Disorder by John Walter, running at their London space on September 29.

The ten-exhibition series comes as a satellite project of Party Out Of Bounds: Nightlife As Activism Since 1980 for Visual AIDS, curated by Emily Colucci and Osman Can Yerebakan and showcases the transformative possibilities of nightlife as activism, particularly in view of the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s.

The larger project features 29 artists, ten of which present their works as part of the series, including Steven Warwick (Heatsick with East Jesus – The Colorado River – Butts & Beyond in July). Walter’s Courtship Disorder is a video work of a pseudo-psychodrama set in a public toilet, drawing from his epic installation Alien Sex Club and exploring the spaces of sex and transmission risk zones.

Steven Warwick @ White Cubicle Toilet Gallery, Jul 21

17 July 2015

Steve Warwick opens up a new show at the White Cubicle Toilet Gallery this week, with East Jesus – The Colorado River – Butts & Beyond, opening on July 21.

The Berlin-based artist and musician (working musically under Heatsick) recently contributed ‘A Postcard from LA‘ to the aqnb/Video in Common video series and now opens his new show in a 1.40m x 1.40m space situated within the Ladies Toilet of the George and Dragon Public House.

The ‘art space’, founded by Pablo Leon de la Barra in 2005, functions with no budget and no staff, and has, despite its humble, um, physical presence, become a kind of an institution on the London art scene.

Warwick’s show comes as the fifth of ten exhibitions at White Cubicle Toilet Gallery in 2015 alone, and  celebrates the art space’s 10th anniversary, with exhibitions and projects by Irene Revell (Electra)Joao Laia, and Jacopo Miliani, scheduled to follow.
