You are invited to join us THIS THURSDAY to Heartbreak! – A new permanent art installation in a working launderette curated by Pamphlet.

Earlier this year we collaborated with Pamphlet  –  a new platform for artists and organisations to communicate to the public. You might remember when we installed our reproduction of Dali’s Persistence of Memory image on the wall of an East London street, instead of a gallery? This month,  Pamphlet are re-imagining the gallery space within the context of the street again, this time by taking over a laundrette on Bethnal Green Road! The exhibition will feature submissions from established artists, creatives and the local community, in response to theme of heartbreak, posted on to the laundry walls.

We will be setting up shop on an ironing board selling Heartbreak presents including an EXCLUSIVE soap designed by Tracey Emin, T-shirsts and Christmas cards. Originals and prints will then be available to purchase from the ART AGAINST KNIVES GALLERY

East London Fawcett Group will be opening up a discussion around the representation of woman in celebrity ‘break-up’ culture and the impact this has on young girls.
Films screening from 7pm.

Smarty Pants will be offering special deals on your dry cleaning to Heartbreak visitors, so take advantage and get a fresh start.
