40x40 Show

The art works are uniformly 40cm square but varied: any media, any style, high & low art, known & unknown artist, and so on. This show is about breaking boundaries.

In truly democratic style, each art work has the same amount of wall space, but each expresses the particular criteria for art of the individual artist. This show asks, of the artist and viewer: What is the state of contemporary art? Are there shared criteria by which we assess an art work? Is there a global art style to be seen?

TheWall@TheGallery: Graffiti Express

London graffiti is getting cleverer, bolder and more and more abstract. Banksy, DrD and the abstract stencillers have blurred the line between art and vandalism and yet more blurring occurs in a new group show by graffiti artists: Eugene Ankomah, Nick Buthcher and Swiftie. Graffiti Express explores how a genre that began as a form of subversive public communication has become legitimate—moving away from the street and into private collections and galleries.

Special event

Three promising graffiti artists will be given 3 blank canvases each to create their own artwork on the spot. The demonstration will take place during Easter (21 to 24 March) everyday from 1-6pm. The freshly made graffiti will be shown until the 11th of April.

The Gallery at Willesden Green, Willesden Green Library Centre, 95 High Road, London NW10 2SF. Times of opening: Monday 17th March – Thursday 10th April, 2pm-6pm.
