Inflatables (Gordon Flemons)
_ http://cade.writtle.ac.uk/GordonFlemons.asp _

8 maggio / 15 giugno 2007
Rinnovata nel fisico e nello spirito, Artandgallery apre con un’inedita serie di eventi che creeranno un nuovo turbine multidisciplinare. L’ex teatro d’opera - attualmente galleria, bar, lounge, garden, meeting point, laboratorio di idee - dopo i primi quattro anni di attività, basati sulla scelta di collettive a tema, si concentra su mostre personali e sulla moltiplicazione di eventi collaterali, brevi e immediati. La prima mostra è il site specific di David Krippendorff.
