Do it, I’m tired of cleaning flats and washing old ladies feet for money
What you need to know:
– This is an open studio event, in my own studio. I’m pretty much letting you in my house. Please be respectful to me and to the other residents my building.
– I am the curator and the ‘gallery owner’ so I can do whatever the fuck I want to. Meaning; expect new unseen experimental non-commercial work.
– It’ll be both Private View and Exhibition so total duration is one evening.
– Everything must go on the night. I’m paying for this out of my own pocket and I’m doing it for 2 reasons – 1: It helps me to sort my latest work. 2: I want share it with YOU. Please help to make this an ongoing thing by buying prints! There’ll be various paper types and sizes starting from £5 – £25 – £50 …and above (if you’re brave enough).
– I’m checking the possibility of having live performances. TBC.
– If YOU have any ideas or questions please leave a comment below or email me: email@example.com

(from Hackney WickED’s website):
Hackney Wick’s mystical buildings will once again throw open their doors for Hackney WickED Open Studios 2012.
Co-ordinating the Open Studios enables Hackney WickED to take people on a tour through this industrial labyrinth, revealing a veiled but thriving artistic community. A rare chance to see an enormous range of practice and to meet some of London’s leading contemporary artists. This event will highlight the intense diversity and sheer concentration of artists working in our square mile.
Introducing Circle at Circa, A photographic exhibition from FEDEC’s Circle shows at Circa Festival 2011 (Auch, France), now premiering at artsdepot from 28 March to 29 April as a part of The Roundhouse’s CircusFest 2012.
