“BRUTAL London” Underground Art Exhibition
Providing an easy way to get in the Halloween spirit, “BRUTAL London” takes your most cringe-worthy thoughts and renders them in the imaginably claustrophobia-inducing space of a dilapidated building. The exhibit, curated by Lazarides Gallery in conjunction with The Vinyl Factory, is an annual off-site exhibition by the legendary art dealers. Curated by Steve Lazarides, “BRUTAL” features various artists’ interpretations of the term – including Cleon Patternson‘s large, black mural, which is reminiscent of Athenian vase paintings; James Lavelle‘s dark short film about a melancholy self-piercing cabaret dancer; and a live performance piece by The Bone Breakers – who wrestled, ran and biked throughout the space with bats. If in the London area, be sure to stop by “BRUTAL London,” located at 180 Strand until October 27.
