13 Feb – 13 Mar 2014 WINTER PRIDE ART AWARDS FINALISTS’ installation moving to the Next Level ‘OFFICE SESSIONS’ at East India Docks.
Delighted to be one of the artists nominated for the Winter Pride Art Awards 2014. The Winter Pride Art Award finalists’ exhibition has now moved from the decadence of Tobacco Docks into the eerie hide-and-seek corporate stillness of East India Docks. A breathtaking exhibition of performance, installation art, photography, fine art and sculpture from a diverse group of international artists. Great to be part of it.
