THE VENDING MACHINE ART GALLERY
The Vending Machine Art Gallery Show II
Exhibition runs: Wednesday 25th January to Sunday 25th March 2017
Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen will host the return of The Vending Machine Art Gallery this January, an exhibition and affordable art project focused on bringing art out of traditional gallery spaces and making it more accessible.
Working with a diverse collection of over 35 emerging artists, the return of the Vending Machine Art Gallery will showcase artistic interpretations around the theme of ‘Celebrating Multiculturalism’ to audiences outside of the typical gallery demographic.
To say that 2016 has been a bit of tough year would be an understatement. As the terrible crisis in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East continues to spill over into Europe, we’ve seen borders rise higher, national identities harden and fear over access to resources grow. Nowhere was this more prevalent than in the UK where a vote for Brexit signalled an overwhelming vote for isolationism, leaving many questioning what it means to be British.
Supporting the notion that immigration and multi-culturalism can and frequently do, stoke the fires of creativity in Britain, this collection of works explore the global and ethnic influences that surround us every day. Diversity that should be revered rather than shunned, celebrated within the art world and crucially, accessible to all. Prints start from just £20.
