Sunday 28th July: Anthea Hamilton’s "LET’S GO" at the Bloomberg Space

One of my favourite facades of London's financial district is the neon rainbow stripe strip lit Bloomberg building that faces Finsbury Square.  The latest show to fill its ground floor exhibition space is "LET’S GO"  by Anthea Hamilton which opened on Friday evening.  Here are my photos from the private view of the artist and her collaborator Gervais Cedric Bitjoka who will be performing within her works on future dates according to the phases of the moon.  It's the Japanese classical dance of Kubiki that has inspired the walls and sculpture of a rubber kimono hanging on household piping painted bright yellow (which perfectly matched my outfit!).  The massive, high-ceiling venue has been covered in large scale striped wallpaper with a character referencing Robert Crumb's hairy limbed illustrations and also reminds me slightly of  Maurice Sendak's "Where The Wild Things Are" with the forest background!
