Invitation to a Rave - 2018 Bow Open show

  • 6 July — 26 August 2018

With over 500 artists working across Bow Arts’ 13 London studio sites, the exhibition is a celebration of some of the most talented artists working in London today.

Turner prize nominee Titchner is known for his attention-grabbing
quasi-slogans, such as I WANT A BETTER WORLD, I WANT A BETTER
ME. In a characteristic exploration of the beliefs and ideologies that
inform our society, Titchner’s selection vibrates with a call to action,
with artworks that engage with very current issues. A public mood of
escapism is embodied in Will Reid’s milky bloodless character in Head
in the sand (I can’t look anymore), while Marcus Orlandi’s Everything is
Bloody Awful So I Made You this Hapless Rainbow colours feelings of
helplessness with nostalgic rainbows of paper-mâché.

For the first time, the Open is also accompanied by an exhibition of
young Bow Artists in the next door Carmelite Café, selected from our
education department’s partner schools. The title Invitation to a Rave
is borrowed from Lena Brazin’s expansive oil painting; other works
include photography, print and sculpture, with all works for sale. A
chance to see recent and relevant work by artists working in London
today, the Bow Open is not to be missed.
