Rock Music is a retrospective of the legendary photographer’s work documenting the most outrageous moments, people and legends in music history.
Celebrated as ‘The Man Who Shot the 70s’, Mick Rock’s images define rock n’ roll. Rock launched his career in 1972 with his portrait of an unknown David Bowie and spent the next four decades capturing the most fascinating and exciting characters in rock music. Coinciding with the publication of Rock’s new book Exposed: the Faces of Rock n’ Roll (available to purchase in the gallery), Rock: Music includes many previously unseen and unpublished images, as well as rare and unexpected portraits from some of Mick’s classic shoots.

ING DISCERNING EYE EXHIBITION
Over the last six years FUEL have produced and published the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Volumes I, II and III.

The exhibition will run from 29 October – 29 November at 4 Wilkes Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6QF, Thursday to Sunday, 11am-6pm.
Love this series of paintings by Melinda Josie depicting animals covered in fungi; (cordyceps to be exact).
Cordyceps – “The spores enter the system of a creature, take over it’s nervous system and drive it upwards to high ground. When the parasite finally takes over, killing the host, the spores are released into the air, (by way of breaking out of the body), and begin to search for the next victim.” – Cool, I think!
This forms part of a group show entitled “Dazzle” at Narwal Art projects (Toronto), running from Sept 9th – Oct 17th, 2010
“Anyone who has been going out in a major city in the UK, and in the fact the world, in the last 10 years, will have picked up a Don’t Panic Pack. Starting in London in 2000 these packs are collected and sought after across the globe by those interested in the city’s arts and culture for the information inside and in particular the highly collectible and valuable Don’t Panic Poster. This unique format has provided a springboard for young creatives and a source of free art for a generation of urban aficionados. Delivered in the ubiquitous Don’t Panic Packs, the Posters have become part of the cityscape across the UK and a treasured component of a night out. In ‘Wild Fantasies’ Don’t Panic Exhibition, come and see some of the highlights by people like Andrew Rae, Banksy, Pentagram, Lucy McLauchlan, Blue Source, Elliot Thoburn, Paul Insect, David Shrigley, Jon Burgerman, James Goggin, Kam Tang, Steven Wilson, Kate Moross, Kate Gibb, Stanley Donwood and many more.”

Israeli born illustrator, Noma Bar creates wonderfully simple, yet clever illustrations, with a consistency which is pretty scary. His Solo show “Bitter Sweet” opening at the KK Outlet next week, showcases the two sides of Bar’s work and personality. The darker politically active side paired with a lighter more playful outlook on life.
Should be good!
Private View: Wednesday 31 March
Exhibition runs 1-30 April

“Art is an escape from universal laws, causalities and reality; it is a world where gravity doesn’t exist and the crayfish whistles on the mountain.”
Not sure I can add anything else to that; Should be an interesting show though!

“Elzo Durt is an artist who uses serigraphy as a medium. His works translate the distress and desires of young adults; this mental confusion towards the complexity of everyday life translates into pop colours on surrealist collages.Elzo is inspired by music and vice versa. From rock and electro to hip-hop, the wacky world of Enzo is a rebuttal to the social and moral order, expressed throughout independent music. It’s a relationship where the world of music and graphic design work together through the creation and organisation of album covers or concerts.”
Nice stuff. Elzo will be showing at the Alice Gallery in Belgium very soon, 21.01.2010 – 27.02.2010. His site it worth a look.
Josie will be taking part in the following exhibition, celebrating 20 years of Central Saint Martins

Looking forward to IFC’s fourth annual show this Thursday. The contributors have been challenged to produce something a little unexpected, by working with a partner of their choosing from any discipline, profession or background. There is no brief to answer, or format to honour – the only limit being the enterprise and imagination of the artists involved, and a liberal 12 month deadline. Found out more here.
James Roper is currently showing at LeBASSE projects, along with Jeremy Asher Lynch and Kevin E. Taylor. UK based James Roper’s work explores a variety of subjects including the restraint and release of energy found within complex structures such as the human body. Very cool!

The exhibition finished yesterday, but for those that didn’t catch the excellent solo show by the talented Danny Sangra (@ Cube PR) , then check out some of the snaps on his blog. Some really nice stuff coming out of the Sangra Stable, gutted I missed it.
“On Thursday, July 9 Carmichael Gallery will play host to The A – Z of Change, the debut LA solo exhibition of Eine. Internationally recognized for his super-sized lettering in urban areas, Eine will unveil a new body of works on canvas that combine his trademark typeface, vivid color palette and provocative imagery to powerful effect.” I’m a fan.
“A group of recent Royal College of Art graduates has taken off to Glasgow to present some products that explore the concept of lightness in an exhibition entitled Airmail at GOODD. Several of the 12 designers involved contributed products that were light in a physical way – such as Stephen Reed’s tape dispenser, which stays put with help of a suction pad rather than weight so you can use it one-handed, and Oscar Diaz’s Found cutlery, made by “editing” plastic bottles and coating them in metal.” – Found in Icon.

The French design publisher, Pyramyd Editions, has recently released a monograph of Post Typography’s work as part of Pyramyd’s Design&Designer series. Also their self curated show “Alphabet”: An Exhibition of Hand-Drawn Lettering & Experimental Typography is returning to Baltimore in April.
I blogged Kirsty over a week back, but I managed to make the Private View last Thursday and thought it was worth another mention. Her work is more amazing in the flesh. Super talented and a nice girl too, however I can’t recall any of the conversation (special cocktails made sure of that). A few iPhone piccies here, defo worth popping in if you around the Brick Lane area.
