For anyone out there who is looking for arty things to go and see in September….
HOMELESS GALLERY 13th-15th Sept (weekend) three day event in the basement of Shoreditch town hall.
A spontaneous and free to all, exhibition of photography and related media.
Organisers have told me it will be a chilled out party atmosphere. Dj’s to play during the duration of the event.
The idea is that everyone (within the photography’s interest) will be able to hang their work there. So if you are a keen photographer, participate! There is no theme and no curator. A democratic event that offers an alternative to a carefully curated shows in a white clinic spaces. Here the presentation and interaction with the author is as crucial, Everyone will have to choose their own place and choose how to present it. It will be more an experience of a creative atmosphere, photographers can share ideas and an experience of an exhibition. All is in the hand of the artists!.
Photographers already set to participate include Jerwood prize winners and those who exhibited in the Photography’s gallery earlier this year.
Hanging will happen on the 12th (which is Friday). Saturday will be an opening/party/private view opened to all. Sunday and Monday will be still on. Participants will have to sign a registration form and agree to the terms and conditions.
Dates are: 13, 14, 15 September. Posters and flyers will be distributed around Shoreditch.

On a large black plastic sheet held together with tape, Raat constructs an anti-neonist pamphlet, its text lifted from an anti-neoist internet site. Large monolithic ‘T’ shaped sound sculptures play KLF music backwards. 101 black and white plastic paintings have been lifted from a neoist internet site and reconstructed in the gallery

Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chararin – The Day Noboday Died. PARADISE ROW. In June of this year Broomberg and Chanarin traveled to Afghanistan to be embedded with British Army units on the front line in Helmand Province. In place of their cameras they took a roll of photographic paper 50 meters long and 76.2 cm wide contained in a simple, lightproof cardboard box. In response to each of these events, and also to a series of more mundane moments, such as a visit to the troops by the Duke of York and a press conference, all events a photographer would record, Broomberg and Chanarin instead unrolled a seven-meter section of the paper and exposed it to the sun for 20 seconds. The results – strange abstract passages and patterns of black, white and variegated hues – all modulated by the heat and the light – deny the viewer the cathartic effect offered up by the conventional language of photographic responses to conflict and suffering.
