The Set Up at KK Outlet

unnamed

Every day we are faced with the most beautiful images of women, we all know they are photoshopped, but do we know all the other dark sides of fashion?

The exhibition ‘The Set Up’ is inspired by the more sinister sides of the fashion industry, like the ideals that are set by the industry to which women can never live up to.

The Set Up is a group show, exhibiting work of Lydia Garnett, Emily Stein, Isabelle Wenzel begins on #FirstThursdays the 7th of March running until Saturday the 29th at KK Outlet.

Anthony Burrill I Like It, What Is It? KK Outlet

KK Outlet are getting geared up for their next opening which will feature the work of graphic artist Anthony Burrill who is launching his new book I Like It, What Is It?

The show of the same name will feature his classic letterpress type faces and simple slogans which give the spectator a profound and playful viewing.

Ever the friend of the earth, his 2010 piece Oil and Water Do Not Mix used discarded BP produce which washed up in the gulf and made a mess of the American coast.

Catch Anthony Burrill exhibiting pictures from his new book I Like IT, What Is It? Opening on First Thursday 7th November at KK Outlet, Hoxton Square.

Ezekiel 36:36 at KK Outlet

Assume Crash Position for the next opening at KK Outlet as they welcome the work of Nick Ballon who has been photographing aeroplanes.

In particular the aeroplanes of Lloyd Aero Boliviano (LAB) and their battle to stay in the sky and flying high since 1925 despite many corrupt decisions from big wigs at the top.

LAB have just the one plane left in the fleet and rely on the generous work of 180 unpaid staff who have stayed loyal to the country’s wonder wings.

Photo’s from the book Ezekiel 36:36 by Nick Ballon will be on display at KK Outlet on First Thursday the 1st of August till Saturday the 31st.

Those with a fear of flying should probably take a Boris Bike.

July First Thursday in Pictures

We began at The Vyner Street Gallery on, Vyner Street featuring the works of graduates from the University of Huddersfield.

In this first picture we are sitting on a beanbag with some headphones of people giggling admiring the rest of the exhibition.

Andy Murray is Massive in Huddersfield, often when bands can’t make the hectic run of Freshers Week Parties the British Number One often steps in.

In this picture we are sitting on the 1st floor of the Vyner Street Gallery, to our left we gaze a Golden London Sky, to the right some rather fetching carpentry. Another audio installation we’re listening to morphed chants from a football match, the team in question is Leeds United. We’ve checked with the sports guys and there happens to be a popular soccer chant of ‘We All Hate Leeds’ while in the Art world we rather like them.

 With several gold stars to their names, the London & Newcastle gallery on Redchurch Street is looking in solid position to take the crown in 2013 for the most encapsulation performance.

This month the whole gallery is dressed in the scribing of Steven Walter who has created loads of huge maps of London’s capital city. In them he’s tweaked with a few of the place names, added a few of his own and created a new city within the city.

The above etcha sketch was part of around 20 separate framed drawings mounted on the wall which shows London as the world. The city is surrounded by sea’s with Esher a mere island floating alongside.

This is a picture of many people looking at the collection of pictures of London World. Next we went to KK Outlet who have entered into a Lib-Lab Con-Dem coalition with Motto Books of Berlin so we stopped for a bit out front to see which party we’d swing for.

From First Thursday August you’ll see Motto in Berlin stocked from head to toe in KK Outlet creations so if you fancy a stay-cation on the continent then head to Germany where you’ll feel right at Hoxton.

This picture in their secret back room proved popular with many bands in particular the Ordinary Boys where lead singer Preston was seen gazing after spending an early evening drink at the Electricty Showrooms with his boys will be boys. We continued to follow him for the rest of the night and will tell you where he went next after you follow Friday.

First Thursday is a monthly celebration of Art across the East, its organised by Time Out and the Whitechapel Gallery. Over 150 venues take part, everyone is welcome and there are free drinks throughout so check back in on August One for some #FirstThursdays fun.

Mr Bingo Hate Mail at KK Outlet

People were qued round the square to check out Mr Bingo’s Hate Mail exhbition at KK Outlet last night with the first lucky pluckers to enter the gallery getting creds for their own personal hate postcard from the artist.

Perhaps the most entertaining and packed we’ve ever seen it.

Great #FirstThursdays vibes all around in the Shoreditch Sunshine – with a musical performance plus some lovely Icelandic Landscapes on show at the Degree Art Gallery on Vyner Street. London and Newcastle on Redchurch Street had some really teasing and testing hanging installations which changed and morphed in the light and the Printspace were hanging a fascinating selection of wrestler / forest / sexual scenes in very high definition.

But the pick of the bunch and certainly worth a stroll through full sober was Mr Bingo at the award winning KK Outlet:

 

Mr Bingo Hate Male at KK Outlet

KK Outlet get ready to tease your tested patience with their next exhibition where they’ll be saying all the twisted tongue tied wild words in your head, you wish you’d said when you get mad.

Mr Bingo Hate Mail Exhibition features the cutting childish insults a heated argument spurns written onto small postcards for you to cltr alt store for the next time you get challenged.

The Shoreditch based artist began by sending a postcard to a stranger called Jonathan Hopkins with a tirade of expletives. The craze caught on and now strangers pay him to send them post cards with demeaning insults?

If this pseudo slurring turns you on or tickles your fancy then you can get your hands on a personalized insult postcard by being one of the first 60 guests through the door on the night and bringing £40.00 cash for the privilege.

Mr Bingo Hate Male Exhibition opens on first Thursday the 6th of June from 7pm running till Saturday the 29th.
