SEXBEAT Debut Exhibition: Wish You Were Her
SEXBEAT has been an inaugural part of London's DIY music scene for the last four years. It has gained notoriety as a promotions outfit, record label and blog specialising in exhibiting challenging live bands in unusual locations including basement vaults, railway arches and 16th century churches.
The identity of the movement has proved integral to its success. A series of increasingly provocative hand drawn images of ladies with their tops off represents the groups playful and tongue in cheek approach towards their work.
Now finally, a hand picked selection of the finest SEXBEAT girls expose themselves together for the first time in a solo exhibition. 10 hand screened prints and a postcard book will be displayed and available to purchase from the gallery.
Keeping with their non conformist attitude to conventional venues, the installation will be held in pop up gallery, soon to be comic book and arts cafe 'Eggs Milk Butter'. Located in a three story abandoned Victorian house and post office building on Southgate Road, De Beauviour.
Launch night of the exhibition is Thursday 2nd June from 6pm - 9pm and runs Thursday to Sunday until June 12.
There is an after party with drinks and dj sets from SEXBEAT and their friends at the Shacklewell Arms (71 Shacklewell Lane, Dalston).
