Lights of Soho: Second Annual Submission to Set Brewer Street Aglow

London’s premier showcase of neon and light art is proud to announce its second annual submission. New and established artists in the form are invited to submit. Their work will be curated by a special guest artist whose name will be revealed in due course. Last year’s submissions were curated by Robert Montgomery, the famous text artist, who works with fire, light and billboards amongst other media, so SEEN expects the standards to be very high. The exhibition will be open to the public from 28th September – 29th October 2016.

Hamish Jenkinson, Lights of Soho’s regular curator is clearly delighted to welcome submissions from all over the world: “After the amazing entries we received last year, which included artists from New Zealand, Israel and beyond, we’re thrilled to once again bring back our democratic experience which allows young artists to submit their work to the gallery. Lights of Soho is a hub for young creatives and we want to shout about these incredible artists and display their works on our walls and welcome in the next generation of light and neon artists.”

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
