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...→

Savvy London shoppers know the quirky art, design and found objects shop/gallery in Primrose Hill. It has become a cult independent store and has established a large fan base amongst local creatives and celebrities. Ever changing art and objects share the space – from a full size, Louis Vuitton-style 1930's double base carrier (looking like it has just fallen from the Titanic), American Airlines sheepskin-lined airline seats, a spaceship from a 1960's Paris fairground, to the lightbox stage door sign from the Windmill Theatre, Meg Mathews' custom 6 foot shiny pink fibreglass Japanese bunny, and an aluminium dentists phantom skull…
**About the curator:**
[Daniel Poole] is one of the cult fashion designers of the 80s. He won a Queen's award for export for his avant-garde tailoring. He is credited as being one of the founding fathers of the European street wear industry. For those clubbing in the 90's the dp logo was a badge of honour with the logo going on to appear everywhere – from Take That Videos to Tony Blair's Party Political Broadcast and episodes of Star Trek.
Poole's anarchic politicised, anti-corporate clothes were sold all over the globe, the US, Japan and throughout Europe. Since 2000, Poole has been concentrating on interior design and curating, working on [Pikes Hotel] for [Ibiza Rocks] & with Chris Bracey’s [God’s Own Junkyard], as well as searching for new talent to display in his Primrose Hill galleries.
