Celebration The Big Picture October 2012
An exciting group show celebrating the work of twenty eight contemporary London artists, many of whom practice from their studios in the converted warehouse spaces that surround the Smokehouse Gallery in Fish Island / Hackney Wick. The artists were asked to creatively interpret the theme of celebration in their own artistic language. Their response is both surprising and rich in both aesthetic appeal and conceptual depth.
This exhibition has become a celebration in itself with the sheer variety of artists of eclectic backgrounds using a myriad of art forms. All of this is set in our beautiful gallery with inspiring views of the Olympic Stadium and Regents Canal.
Celebration the Big Picture will have something for everyone to enjoy, giving you an insight into the underbelly of the contemporary art world emerging out of this previously unused area of east London.
