Save Yourselves in Hackney Wick

save-your-selves-pre-poster

For at least a decade, the urban art landscape of the East London area called Hackney Wick has shaped and developed the aesthetic of this unique pocket of London. Many of these artists have gone on to become some of the most prolific street artists of our time. As most buildings are doomed for demolition, subsequently so is the rich heritage of urban art in East London. Is there now anything left to Save, apart from ourselves?

Save Yourselves celebrates the art and the artists who have personal and emotional connections to the area. This October 14th at Stour Space, featured artist Aida Wilde will once again assemble the ‘Lunatics’ from the recent takeover of the Lord Napier pub (Hackney Wicked 2016), bringing you an immersive, visual and historical experience.

By sharing personal photos and archival images and footage, the local people of The Wick, Hackney WickED and Save Hackney Wick have contributed to what promises not to be just another gallery show but an insight into this unique community past and present.

Exhibiting along with the ‘Lunatics’ will be the launch of the printed posters of Sisters In Print,  a collective of opinionated sixteen national and international female artists, sharing  the love of print and print making. The prints produced for the show are all printed in Aida’s studio in the heart of Hackney Wick.
