Art Events This First Week In December 09

StolenSpace Gallery are hosting their Xmas group Show this Thursday and as always, I know for a fact that it's going to be a lot of fun!
Old Truman Brewery
91 Brick Lane
E1 6QL

Pictures on Walls have announced the dates for their annual Christmas event. Wittingly entitled The Fiesta Resistance two things are for sure; a) that it will be a killer art extravaganza with some familiar and un-familiar names contributing;
b) true to form details of the event will be vague until the last possible moment.
For anyone wanting to go the first stumbling block is where the hell is it going to be held? The only thing to do at the minute is to sit tight, keep looking for updates and start looking for a spare credit card.



After a magnificently mutoid October saw nearly 20,000 people come and indulge in the MuTate experience, One Foot in the Grove is back with a Christmas special and you're invited to an exclusive private viewing to kick off the festivities.

Open for three weeks throughout December, the Westway will once again play home to countless new works of art, graffiti, paintings, stencils, installations, sculptures, object d'art, bric-a-brac, ceramics, clothing and much more. As well as new contributions from the likes of Joe Rush, Wreckage and Dotmasters, there will also be pieces from new contributors such as Shepard Fairey, D Face, Dan Hillier and Word to Mother.

This special sneak peek will provide a first chance to see some of the most innovative, original and cutting edge artwork London has to offer. So make sure your name is on the guestlist and RSVP below!

One Foot in the Grove is open from 2-10pm Friday, 1-10pm Saturday, 12-9pm Sunday and can be found under the Westway, just off Portobello Road.

To RSVP, for more information and media requests, email dan@raw-material.co.uk

Part selling exhibition, part art installation - there's probably something for everyone at The Evil Xmas Fayre, presented by Arts Co & Pure Evil over 5th and 6th December at The East Room and Sosho (London EC2) between 12 and 5pm.

Pitched as 'a twisted take on a traditional European Christmas fair', the Evil Xmas Fayre is a selling exhibition of original art and prints. But you'll also find Xmas hell at Sosho, where the walls will be wheat-pasted by an army of Santa’s dark helpers (a mystery line up of London's best street artists), along with the Xmas Squat installation by Luc Price aka Cyclops. If you head next door to The East Room, there's also the chance to make your own snowglobe in the magical Snowglobe Lounge whilst also doing the full 'eat, drink and be merry' thing.

Artist selling at the event will include Aryz, Beatrice Brown, Deadbeat Donny, Does, Ged Wells, Hornhead, Joanna Imrie, Ortiz, Panik, Probs, Pure Evil, Rabodiga and Soozy Lipsey. The Art Car Boot Fair will also host a section of the fayre with all manner of art works, art ware and services from regular art car booters, while other goodies will include 3D jigsaw cut Christmas trees sprayed by a street artists and stockings packed with fayre art. Just a £1 donation (in support of StreetSmart) gets you in.

Streetartist, Stik gets his first solo show in london at the Mile End Arts pavilion, from the 5th to the 20th December.

Black Rat Press: The pop-up antiquarian bookshop is also rumoured to be haunted and is built inside our railway arch gallery.
The bookshop will be filled with an unusual selection of books from major and independent book publishers. A large selection of second hand books and artist made fanzines, counter cultural manuals and films will be available. Artwork by Swoon, Grayson Perry, Giles Walker, Matt Small and Lucas Price will also be on display. Reports have already been received of eerie incidents and strange happenings, with books magically flying off shelves, and lights switching themselves on and off. Halloween may have been and gone but the real ghosts and ghouls work all year round. In addition to this we will be releasing a new edition by Brain Douglas (elbow-toe).

Featuring From Antony Micallef - Zevs and everyone in between
3rd December 2009 - 16th January 2010
Alongside our Grifters event at Rathbone Place and across the streets of London, our SHOP at Greek Street is hosting the physical launch of our brand new online shopping website, featuring an exciting cornucopia of prints, posters, multiples, drawings and all manner of ephemera and collectibles that will also be available to purchase online from 4th December.
The exhibition takes place at SHOP at Lazarides 8 Greek Street, Soho, London, W1D 4DG, from 4th December until January 16th 2010.

Featuring David Choe, Antony Micallef, Charlie Isoe, Conor Harrington, Faile, Invader, Jonathan Yeo, JR, Lucy McLauchlan, Mark Jenkins, Mode2, Paul Insect, Vhils, Kelsey Brookes and some special guests.
3rd December 2009 - 16th January 2010
Titled Grifters, the December event will focus on all new work from the Outsider artists in all manner of mediums, from sculpture to installation, canvas to collage, paper to poster, performance to photography. Alongside the gallery offerings, a series of paintings and street sculptures will begin to pop up all over the City from the end of November right through December, so keep your eyes peeled (unless you work for the council, in which case we don’t know what you’re talking about, we’ve never heard of any of these artists, ever).

Those of you sharing a combined love of art and staying warm, worry not, for you’ll be relieved to hear that the Rathbone Place gallery will be turning up the heat in more ways than one, and handing over all four floors of the gallery to our Outsiders group of artists, with a special installation from Lucy McLauchlan covering the entire staircase.

The exhibitions, street interventions, and our brand new website launch will take place in our galleries at Lazarides 11 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1HR, and SHOP at Lazarides 8 Greek Street, Soho, London, W1D 4DG, as well as out and about across the streets of London from 4th December until 16th January 2010.

This Thursday the 3rd of December, the 55DSL London’s Flagship Store in Newburgh Street is for the second time home of Pic+Mix, the new series of art exhibitions curated by Intercity for 55DSL, working this time with the Monorex.

The first show featured the work from graphic designer Sanderson Bob who chose to work with blacksmith Sam Sherbone. This Thursday's show will see experimental graffiti artist Chu take over the space and he has chosen to work with fellow artist and illustrator Disco Teck, using the tools of their trade, aerosol vs. marker pen, to give a 360 degree installation that will seriously turn your head!

The show will run at the 55DSL Flagship Store, 10A Newburgh Street, from 4 to 24 December
