What’s on at Bow Arts July…

First Thursday Late Opening >
Thursday 6 July (6-9pm)
Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ
Free entry

With 19 artists selected, Alex Chinneck’s playful selection focuses on shape and includes painting, photography and works on paper, with work that encompasses the very current themes of politics, consumption and the longing for simpler things.

Summer Performance Evening > 
Thursday 20 July – Gallery open from 6pm, performances begin at 7:30
Bow Arts Courtyard, 183 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ
£3/£5

Performances return to the Bow Arts Victorian courtyard with 3 works that probe our social and cultural boundaries. Marcus Orlandi’s The Daily Male is a dissection of masculinity and right wing ideology; Adam J B Walker’s Mother is a performative interview in response to an essay written by the artists as a student on the social construction of motherhood in Victorian Britain alongside his visibly heavily pregnant partner; and finally esther moya’s medal was stole from her by, Luis Amalia & Alice Esme is an absurd conversation and exam on the English language, gleefully exploring our relationship with accents and language association.
