Mutate Britain Set to Re-Open One Foot in the Grove - December 2009
If you haven't heard of Mutate Britain before then allow me to paint a picture (pardon the pun). MB is an arts foundation movement founded by 80s art and sculpture group, Mutoid Waste Company and the Cordy House Family. The idea behind the collaboration is to take art out of the gallery and onto the streets, using open spaces and neglected buildings. Mutoid Waste Company have specialised in recycling old scrap and existing man-made and natural resources and materials to create something completely out of the ordinary for over two decades.
One of their most successful exhibitions has been 'One Foot In The Grove', a 12,000 square foot covered space situated under the Westway just off Portobello Road, West London, filled with spectacular street art, sculptures, posters, paintings, photographic art, clothing and various exotic trinkets, some of which are for sale.
The re-launch of this event is due to popular demand - the first few nights during the previous exhibition run, chalked up attendances of over 20,000! The space will therefore re-open from December 4th to the 20th, weekends ONLY. Admission is from Midday until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays and Midday to 9pm on Sundays.
And it's FREE! (Donations are most welcome though).
The art is not the only attraction - food will be provided by Fingerlick, the catering project devised by Neneh Cherry and Andi Oliver (as seen on TV)....and yes, it is THAT Neneh Cherry before you ask. There is also a licensed bar as well as music.
Although the space is huge, the venue will fill up quickly. This is a truly individual, value-for-money event that will appeal don't forget to dig deep to keep the Mutate dream alive.
