Robert Montgomery pops up posters

After a lot of exhibitions elsewhere, Robert Montgomery’s first London solo show in over a year has opened at KK Outlet.

'Montgomery’s work references the Situationist tradition of capturing the audience’s attention in unexpected ways within the public realm. For his show at KK Outlet Montgomery has created a series of 3 large billboard poems on Old Street, which reference the moral failure of Capitalism, the concerns of the Occupy movement, and new ideas of freedom in the city.'

Good to see the whole thing was sponsored by that arch-enemy of capitalism - Red Stripe (owned by Diageo).

For more information see KK Outlet and the launch night Flickr feed.

Glorious Shed at London Art Fair

Anyone who's taken a river trip along the Spree in Berlin will have seen the wonderful range of sheds along the river bank, structures whose spirit is reflected in the work of Berlin based artist Gabriel Dubois that Edel Assanti has brought to London Art Fair. (Thanks to Andrew Davies for the link.)
