To cap off the first year in the splendid surroundings of our new Rathbone Place gallery, Lazarides will be bringing some of the biggest names in street art to London for a spectacular group show where much of the art will be nowhere near the cosy confines of our glamorous gallery.
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 and street interventions will take place in our galleries at Lazarides 11 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia, and 8 Greek Street, Soho, as well as out and about across the streets of London from 4th December–16th January 2010.
We would like to thank Londonewcastle, and Robert Soning & Rohan Ames in particular, for supplying many of the "street canvas" locations around London for our artists.
