First Thursday Private View – To Your Health: A Hero of Switzerland exhibition

On the first Thursday of every month the galleries and museums of East London open their doors late for a chance to see amazing art, culture and events after hours. We are pleased to have the wonderful collective Hero of Switzerland show their all analogue artwork in our gallery space!

WHAT: First Thursday Private View – To Your Health: A Hero of Switzerland exhibition

Exhibiting artists alongside Dan Button and Esme Tearle this year are the usual troupe of dear friends, old and new, hangers on and talented creeps that will produce work specifically for the To Your Health themed show. Come along and join us for a drink and a look at some amazing art!

This event is free so why not come along!! The exhibition is on in our Basement Gallery until September 23rd; make sure to check it out!

About the artists

Ben, Dan and Esme met as bored slackers working in shitty cubicles, at a shitty job, for shitty money. It was shitty. Since then however, through their camaraderie, a shared love of pubs, fish and chips, naughty words and pop culture, they decided to scribble, stitch, paint and scratch all the daft things that have entered their head brains. Hero of Switzerland is the vulgar, bleary-eyed but rather pretty creature that emerged. Individually and as a group Hero of Switzerland have exhibited across London and the UK and have been featured in publications such as Design Week, Guardian Guide and The Huffington Post for their work, exhibitions and blogs such as A Horse with Hands Riding a Bike.
