A BIPOC experimental space that has an art programme as well as a public one engaging a local community as well as giving support to those without access to a visual arts network.

Unlike some spaces, we do not use our platform to self aggrandise or virtue signal, we are self funded and work through a series of hardships whilst still having the ability to maintain relationships to facilitate people who need it

Two Day Sound System is a group exhibition reflecting the cultural and aesthetic legacies of a recent installation by a group of artists in Notting Hill Carnival.

The exhibition transforms the space into a re-imagined rendition of the installations at NHC from the perspectives of artists living and working in the borough by bringing home the intervened works and also video documentation of the day. The exhibition celebrates the ways in which music culture was and is a means for making home, and for finding community and connection across cultures and generations.

DUB INNA BABYLON

A follow up project to the initial exhibition, we presented three site specific works by Mandy El-Sayegh, Ruby Eve Dickson and Emmanuel Awuni




Skincare is site specific installation by Mandy El-Sayegh exploring the studio/street relation of her hyde works that will be displayed as an accumulating surface in the background of Notting Hill Carnival.
Whos walls is it anyway? Graffers deface, embolden, emblazon, fix or fight with the textures of the venue.

The skins were viewable during Notting Hill Carnival at 120 Talbot Road on 28th-29th of August

Emmanuel Awuni - Rise and Show No Fear
In collaboration with PM/AM, we installed the board on a wooden structure prior to the initiation of Notting Hill Carnival, on the day of the carnival we found the board to have been moved due to Gaz’s Rock N’ Blues putting on some daft aquatic stage which had no relevance to Notting Hill Carnival other than to make a safe place for goofy middle class men like himself. We moved the board onto a nearby shop front and with the kindness of a local newsagent ‘OM Wines’ we managed to affix the board to another shop front with OS wooden boards to protect the glass. The entire board and our affixed one was then removed after NHC to become a work on it’s own.
