John Isaacs and Billy Childish are art ambassadors at Gallery Weekend Berlin

By Culture24 Reporter | 24 April 2013

A set of paintings by irrepressible artist Billy Childish, housed in a temporary exhibition space on Münzstraße, and a set of conceptual and playful sculptures by John Isaacs will provide the ambassadorial artworks for Britain during a mini-festival in Berlin this weekend.

A co-founder of the subversive Stuckist movement, Childish – who has occasionally attracted infamy for his poetry and music, let alone his art – will be taking his “complex universe” of “personal and literary references” to Gallery Weekend Berlin, which is linking an alliance of 51 contemporary galleries in the German capital.

Lancaster-born but now Berlin-based, Isaacs’ singular sculptures have featured in major galleries across the world. He will present The Hand That Rocks the Cradle at Galerie Michael Haas.
