The second exhibition for Artcore International’s newest gallery, Crow’s Nest Gallery, features contemporary art from a diverse selection of international urban artists, many of whom have developed from writing illegal graffiti and have risen in popularity to exhibit at esteemed art establishments like Victoria & Albert Museum, Moniker Art Fair, Miami Basel Art Fair, Nuart Festival and Cans Festival organised by Banksy.
Perhaps you didn’t know it, but chances are you’ve seen a Joe Rush sculpture before.
Maybe it was the rocket ship Usain Bolt rode through the Olympic Stadium at the Paralympics, or some mental creation thundering past you while you were off your tits at Glastonbury.
Joe makes his marvellous mechanical sculptures and vehicles from old waste metal and scrapyard junk, creating beautiful, utilitarian sculptures and Mad Max-style monsters that rumble through the streets and fields.
‘While the Iron is Hot’ is Joe’s premiere gallery exhibition, featuring sculptures specially conjured up for home-installation, to be loved and cherished for generations to come
The event takes place from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday 21st November 2014.
The exhibition is open to the public from 17th January to 15th February 2014. Gallery opening hours are 12–6pm, Tuesday to Saturday, and admission is free.
