FRIDAY 7 JULY

Preview: ULTRA SUNRISE

6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ SET Alscot Road, 76-89 Alscot Road, London, SE13AW

The name Ultra Sunrise comes from a Monster energy drink flavour suggesting a modification or enhancement of a natural and uncontrollable occurrence. Work in the show will respond to this concept alongside ideas exploring instant gratification and quick fixes to modern problems.

 

SATURDAY 8 JULY

Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair (ASP) – The Third

11:00 AM – 6:00 PM @ ICA, The Mall, St. James’s, London, SW1Y 5AH

ASP3 will, like its predecessors, feature over seventy British and international independent artist self-publishers for the one-day fair. The publications are still the art works: affordable and available, free from the fetters of the institution or gallery, the ideas, images and text are produced and published by artists who understand the restrictions and freedoms of the printed page.
