The Gate Art Collective presents GATE CRASH the last of 4 exhibitions at 57a Goldhawk Road - located beside Goldhawk Road tube station. This closing exhibition will open on Tuesday 10th June at 2pm, with drinks after at The Gate - 54 Richford Gate, Richford Street

Forms of art take over this unit (the ex-florists) for a few more days before the new tenant moves in. Today's temporary art space = tomorrows eternal coffee shop. There was no rent or electricity to pay for this 1 month occupation. It was free TfL PR, based on The Gate's charitable status - an organization where art and music are made by people who have what is called learning disabilities. In between garbage bags lie fake bombs surrounded by banners, shields, flag maps and Atos painting. On one wall hangs a sculpture of a naked woman made by one of the members of the collective who has recently started investigating her lesbian identity.
