Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

From December 6th 2013, Space In Between (SIB) is hosting a large exhibition and preview event to raise money to support the exciting gallery commissioning programme of new works by important emerging artists.
For this over 20 well-known and emerging artists are each producing a pub sign, based on the name of a London pub, which will be installed as part of an exhibition at Londonewcastle Project Space.
Artists involved include Jake & Dinos Chapman, Raqib Shaw, Goshka Macuga, Charles Avery, Melanie Manchot, Stuart Haygarth and Ernesto Neto alongside SIB’s very own emerging artists. And all of these original artworks, featuring famous pub names such as the Olde Chedder Cheese, The Cutty Sark and the Cross Keys, will be available to buy later this year, with all money raised going to support SIB’s ongoing programme.
SIB was co-founded in 2009 to provide a platform for emerging artists, and to date has worked with over 50 individual artists and collectives from across the UK. Many of these artists continue to work with the gallery today, contributing to the strong aesthetic and theoretical identity of SIB.
A group exhibition of commissioned work will be installed in the second gallery of Londonewastle Project Space, giving visitors and supporters a glimpse in to the gallery’s programme and the work of the artists involved.
The earliest pub signs date from the Roman times, when a wreath of vine leafs would hang outside an establishment (this is often put down to the fact people couldn't read or write), which in course changed when in England they were replaced with evergreen shrubs and tree branches. This tradition was eventually replaced by painted signs depicting bushes and trees, particularly the Yew. In 1393 King Richard II passed a Royal Act making it compulsory for pubs and inns to have a sign hanging outside. Two pubs are closing in Britain everyday and so pub signs is an apt and topical inspiration for this fundraising event.
In Gallery 1 a fully operational pop-up pub – *The Faithful Muse* – will play host to a series of live events, pub quizzes, music and a darts tournament.
