Weds 26th Jan: Art Against Knives with Gilbert and George
Last night the charity ART AGAINST KNIVES hosted an event at The White Cube Gallery, inviting guests to a private view of GILBERT & GEORGE’s latest exhibition ‘THE URETHRA POSTCARD ART'. The gathering was organised to thank supporters and welcome the new year by disclosing plans for ART AGAINST KNIVES in 2011. To kick off the proceedings GILBERT & GEORGE kindly made a personal appearance as did Richard Barnes, the deputy Mayor of London.
AAK's prerogative is to tackle and diminish knife crime by providing creative opportunities for young people. Their new departure "OurSpace" is a platform to engage the local community, through youth-led arts based projects. The device has been designed to provide groups the opportunity to communicate, deliver and sustain solutions to personal issues via peaceful process.
Thanks to Katy and Oliver for the invite and thanks to Vicky Langdon for the photos.
