CURATED BY REECE JONES
29th September - 26th October 2012
Panel discussion October 19th. 7:30pm
Opening times | Thurs - Sun 12 - 6pm
'The Hair of the Dog' will navigate the detritus of parties just ended or evoke the utopian vision of a liberated or bohemian social past. Reflecting on our habits, our ideals and misdemeanors, our perversions, pretensions and cultural identities.
An inner ear singing with tinnitus, smudged stamp marks on hands, sorry bits of tinsel clinging to styrene ceiling panels, regretful recollections of fumblings and ill advised proclamations, sticky carpets, powder encrusted glass coffee tables, the echo of a permissive naivety and the moment it tipped from optimism to cold, dew soaked reality.
At 7.30pm on the 19th October Block 336 will play host to a panel discussion which will touch on these themes in relation to the particular (and broader) practices of the artists involved.
Block 336 is an artist-led gallery based at 336 Brixton Road, SW9 7AA. Block 336 has over 450 square metres of exhibition space. The gallery is a short walk from Brixton tube station, the vibrant Brixton Village and O2 Brixton Academy.
