*In finance, a dead cat bounce is a small, temporary recovery in the price of a declining stock.

Harold Pinter on Art, Truth and Politics

 

In his 2005 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Harold Pinter excoriated US foreign policy. “The invasion of Iraq was a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law.” He also speaks of “the pathetic and supine Great Britain”¬†commenting that we are a “bleating little lamb tagging behind it [The US] on a lead”. “What has happened to our moral sensibility?” Pinter asks, “Did we ever have any? What do these words mean? Do they refer to a term very rarely employed these days ‚ÄĒ conscience? A conscience to do not only with our own acts but to do with our shared responsibility in the acts of others? Is all this dead?”

This speech left me speechless! It should be viewed at least once a year.

Star Food & Wine / Thursday 21st November: 6pm – 9pm

With only one week until we open I think now is a good time to announce my next exhibition venture! I am officially launching Waxwing Exhibitions an art collective dedicated to showcasing emerging artists with a focus on participatory, interactive and performance based work. Our first show brings together artists who have been on international exchanges from Central Saint Martins. Keep your eye out for forthcoming open calls for future shows and projects.

Star Food & Wine

An exhibition featuring the work of artists who have undertaken international exchange programs.

Opening Night: Thursday 21st November, 6pm – 9pm

From New York to Paris and Kyoto to Tallinn, our group of artists have all been involved with exchanges at art schools around the globe. On our return to the London art community we have combined to produce a dynamic and interactive art show to celebrate our collaboration with leading art institutions across the world.

For one week, we are occupying 3 floors of a vacant shop space ‚ÄėStar Food & Wine‚Äô on Old Street. Through visual arts, performance & collaborative practices and inspired by the diversity of our cultural experiences, the show will promote the importance of community and the sharing of ideas across our increasingly globalized planet.
