Following the success of CAN'T WIN. DON'T TRY. (An Art Show) the CWDT family have come together once again to create CAN'T WIN. DON'T TRY 2. (Tropical, Not Topical).
In a time of rapid change, we have decided that there is a new generation of art which needs a new way to be displayed, as the old rules of the gallery are becoming an outmoded experience for the middle aged and middle class to wile away a sunday afternoon. We believe that new art is dynamic, exciting, and full-on, and needs a space to be displayed in accordance with the environment it was made in, and is representative of.
We are striving to swerve the emerging paradigm of internet complainers, of doom and gloom media outlets, and of enforced seriousness infesting our social media feeds, our conversations and our subconcious. After all, what good is saving the planet if no one's having fun anymore?
From the 11th - 16th October, CAN'T WIN. DON'T TRY 2. (Tropical Not Topical) will be taking over Kamio @ the Red Gallery, in London's faux-cultural capital, Shoreditch, to continue our quest to redefine the art show for the late-internet age.
The show will feature work from over 30 new, dynamic and multi-talented artists. Our lineup includes work from:
We endeavour to continue to explore the Information Overload and the Attention Economy; we will be saturating your senses throughout the week, starting with our all-out, no-holds-barred, white-knuckle-thrill-ride of a launch party, three days of workshops, talks and other engaging and/or disturbing activities, and a weekend art and print fair where everything has a price, and you never know what bullshit we might persuade you to waste your hard-earned money on.
A Moderately Priced Cloakroom
& Everything you else you could possibly need on a Tuesday night.
The opening night will be a two-level art-party spectacular, with over 25 new and exciting artists. Our basement will be specially hosted by MODE FM (http://www.modefm.com/) and The Master of Inane Conversation (https://soundcloud.com/masterofic), and will be fully kitted with a Funktion-One soundsystem, dry ice and a dancefloor surrounded by engaging artistic endevours and a counterfeit money rainforest.
