An exhibition of new, site specific work by:
Curated by Rob Leech
Catch | 22 Kingsland Road | London E2 7NG
06/04/2012 - 05/06/2012
Over the years, I have enjoyed many a great time at Catch. It therefore gives me
great pleasure to be given the opportunity to organise an exhibition of
site-specific artwork in their lower bar area.
Catch is one of the longest standing late-night bars in Shoreditch, and although now ‘growing up’ a little, holds its place in the hearts of many as somewhere to dance until the small hours, and find love, lust and excess. I thought that these themes – those related to the very nature of late-night revelry – would be a good to starting point for an exhibition of work here.
I hope that you can make it along.
I hope that you have fun.
