Happy new year everyone – yes, NO:ID is a
bit late but here is why.

Identity, says Sloterdijk, is an excuse for
lazyness. Identity is something that
possesses us, rather than us possessing it.
Much better an on-going endeavour to
create and re-de-fine the self. NO:ID
Gallery is presenting non-identical art:
everything is unique. And everything is new
and constantly changing.

We are very happy about our new home in the
Midlands – Gallery150 is the name of the
venue. However, NO:ID Gallery as a name and
an undertaking continues. We are preparing
a couple of great show here and there.

The first is an open submission group show
here in Leamington Spa. Please have a look
at our website, and the one of that space.
This show allows everyone to submit a piece
of art for only 10 pound submission fee –
a great opportunity also for London based
artists, in my opinion, to present and
eventually sell their works.


The second one is a more specific NO:ID show
where we curate half the space there, Juan
Jose Bravo, Veronica Fox, Martin Lau, and
some more t.b.c. at the beginning of March.
Still some vacancies!

The third will be in May, and it will take
over the entire space, under the title
“Me, Myself, and I”. That fits in nicely
with the theme of identity, doesn't it?
Think about it now, details to submission
will follow.

Freedom Bookshop and Autonomy Club, Angel
Alley, 84b Whitechapel High Street; London
E1 7QX. David Byers-Brown has updated the
dystopian imagery of a grasping, unspiritual
materialism of the world's snatch and grab
multi-national disaster, creating a
masterpiece, with Micalef's out of the
Blakean carnival of Chaos – tweaked for
the modern ear and eye. Bringing Blake's
profound message from 200 years ago to a
fresh audience, as radically urgent today as
it was then.
