Grifters at Lazarides: now open

Grifters at Lazarides: now open

You’ve seen the street pieces, felt the hype and tried to sneak past the bouncers at the private view…well, now Lazarides’ star-studded ‘Grifters’ show is open to the public. For more info check lazinc.com. Or read the press release after the jump.

Love it or loathe it, the festive season is almost upon us once

more. And love it we most certainly do, because at Lazarides

that means it’s party time, and this year we’re literally going to

paint the town red. And green. And orange. And yellow. And

blue… And so, to cap off the first year in the splendid

surroundings of our new Rathbone Place gallery, Lazarides will

be bringing some of the biggest names in street art to London

for a spectacular group show where much of the art will be

nowhere near the cosy confines of our glamorous gallery.

Titled The Grifters, the December event will focus on all new

work from the Outsider artists in all manner of mediums, from

sculpture to installation, canvas to collage, paper to poster,

performance to photography. Alongside the gallery offerings, a

series of paintings and street sculptures will begin to pop up all

over the City from the end of November right through December,

so keep your eyes peeled (unless you work for the council, in

which case we don’t know what you’re talking about, we’ve

never heard of any of these artists, ever).

Those of you sharing a combined love of art and staying warm,

worry not, for you’ll be relieved to hear that the Rathbone Place

gallery will be turning up the heat in more ways than one, and

handing over all four floors of the gallery to our Outsiders group

of artists, with a special installation from Lucy McLauchlan

covering the entire staircase.

But that’s n-n-n-not all, folks, because simultaneously, Lazarides

will be launching a brand new website for prints, posters,

multiples, drawings and all manner of ephemera and collectibles

at the Shop at Greek Street.

The exhibition, street interventions, and website launch will take

place in our galleries at Lazarides 11 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia,

London, W1T 1HR, and SHOP at Lazarides 8 Greek Street, Soho,

London, W1D 4DG, as well as out and about across the streets

of London from 4th December until January 16th 2010
