No stuffy art galleries in site. I promise.
Over the past couple of months I have been following a new gallery project Open Doors London which is set to literally pop up all over London and most importantly it will be by the people of the capital. Think you know your own postcode, then Open Doors London may open it up to a whole new cultural melting pot on your doorstep.
Open Doors London network aims to launch exhibitions and activities using the cultural hustle and bustle of London’s boroughs as inspiration. They’re heading back to more traditional values of art, by exploring it in this postcode format which will be an expression of people, events and ideas that have maybe not been voiced before.
Behind the helm at Open Doors London are some lovely enthusiastic people, Tom and Katy who despite their day jobs are launching the first show ‘Exhibition W12’ on 24th September at a couple of locations, Galloway Road and Hemlock Road. Take a sneaky peek and click me to see some images of W12 by Tom.
Pop along to W12!
Their mission is to ‘encourage our artists to help us document the lives of the people living in a chosen borough. This could mean using any medium they wish, from film and photography through to the more traditional sculpture and painting‘.
Explore their site to see more artists work and also see they’re ever growing digital scrapbook of past and present images and memories of London. It’s a site that they’re adding to each week as this unique and refreshing project grows!
They’re always on the lookout for locations and artists from London Boroughs so get in touch with them below and see if they’ll be planning to come to a postcode near you!
