November/December 2018 – The Hackney Creative Social Club
Intervention, an exhibition of over 30 contemporary artists (including works by Aida Wilde, Paul Insect, Darren Cullen, Helen Bur and Edwin) opens on Friday 30th November 2018 in the gallery at East London’s new artist-hub and studio workspace: The Hackney Creative Social Club.
For the artist provocateurs featured in Intervention, the city is a stage and their audience are unwitting participants. Each exhibited work is in itself a game of call and answer: a charged signal sent out, yielding a visceral response from the viewer.
Dioramas of micro-citizens stopped in their tracks by splats of bird excrement sit alongside unsolicited public fountains, disruptive bus stop signs, fake recruitment campaigns, illegal golf ball traffic controls, pirate projections and a slew of subversive street art messaging. Pure Evil repurposes street signs, Carrie Reichardt covers houses with mosaics depicting Mexican-style Day of the Dead skulls and Dan Rawlings cuts elaborate silhouettes from street signs in this provocatively playful collection.
Using multiple mixed media to startling, disquieting and amusing effect, Intervention riffs on the very fabric of the inner-city, injecting a healthy edge of rebellion into the everyday and transforming commonplace architecture and items of urban infrastructure into zones of challenging artistic exploration.
Opened in December 2018, The Hackney Creative Social Club features a gallery, restaurant, photo lab and 10 art studios available to rent at reasonable rates. Breaking the mould of the ubiquitous “creative work hubs” rampantly propagating across the city, this members club was spawned as a space with soul and is set to become central to the support and survival of London’s artistic underbelly.
