Once again Open Doors London organised another postcode exhibition and this time it was in Brixton SW9 – with a great mix of artist who create work in various mediums and styles.
well yesterday they had a very special visitor – Prince Charles!
I took some photos of the initial preparation and a few of Prince Charles who was surrounded by press and other assortment of business people.
here’s a slideshow – they are available for digital download – please contact me if you have any questions or get stuck.
The visit was in connection with Brick Box, a Community Interest Company for South London.
‘We are a ‘ground up’ arts organisation and community movement made up of artists, dreamers, hopers and no hopers’
They are using the ex Angel Public House, 354 Coldharbour Lane, as a community space which is how Open Doors came to show this exhibition.
Exhibition SW9 is an arts show all about Brixton hosted by The Brick Box and OpenDoors London. During the weekend ExhibItion SW9 will be exploring and celebrating Brixton and its community through art. Events include:
THE POSTCODE GALLERY: an art exhibition themed around a game of consequences. OpenDoors has collected words written by local residents about the area. The words have been passed onto artists who will be exhibiting original art directly inspired by the words.
