‘Between The Lines’ is an all new urban contemporary group show at The Mine, Dubai, curated by Rom Levy, featuring Andrew Schoultz, Kenton Parker, RETNA, Andrew Faris, Paul Insect, BAST, eL Seed, Jenny Sharaf and Word to Mother.
Notorious British artist Sickboy, alongside forward thinking collective, Fluorescent Smogg, has developed an old mechanics yard into a temporary gallery over the course of 6 months. Starting life as his personal studio, he has transformed the space into an immersive installation, featuring an all-star cast of artists.
Arms have been twisted and strings have been pulled all over the world to bring together some of the finest contemporary artists, each with their own unique style and skill-set.
The show will be an independently produced and all-enveloping alternate universe, running over the course of 10 days, with a carefully curated roster of events, timed print releases and originals available throughout the course of the showcase.
Limited editions dropping through to the week include an iridescent foil screen-print, ceramic pipes and enamel pin sets, super-limited micro-edition prints and some other surprises from Sickboy along the way, as well as an artist-curated outdoor cinema.
Exhibiting artists include: Mr Jago – Ben EINE – Xenz – Sickboy – Word To Mother – Broken Fingaz – Roid
MSK – Ekoe – Mudwig – Russell Maurice – Petro
The location of the show will be released 24hrs before it opens – details at www.fluorescentsmogg.com

On November 13th Galerie Le Feuvre in Paris held an opening of their final event of the year, group show titled “& Friends the UK collective”. Featuring works by some of the UKs biggest stars from the street and urban art scene, the visitors could meet and see works of Paul Insect, Andrew McAttee, Sickboy, Xenz, Mr Jago and Word to Mother.
Curated with an idea to give a chance to experience the diversity and singularity of the British current art, the show included artists that to this day never exhibited in France. With all of them in attendance, the opening night turned into quite a party, while the quality of the works exhibited proved the show to be a great success on all levels. (photo © Marion Patoret)
