Moore Outside

"I personally believe that all life is a conflict; that’s something to be accepted, something you have to know. And you have to die, too, which is the opposite of living. One must try to find a synthesis, to come to terms with opposite qualities. Art and life are made up of conflicts.

I think really that in great art, i.e. in the art I find great, this conflict is hidden, it is unsolved. Great at is not perfect. Take the Rondanini Pietà, one of the greatest works of Michelangelo. It is not a perfect work of art. There is a huge arm remaining from the earlier statue which was later changed into the Pietà. It has nothing to do with the composition. Nevertheless, it was left there."

Henry Moore.

Rapha London

This May, for three months only, the Rapha Cycle Club will open in London. A unique combination of gallery, shop and café, the Cycle Club is a meeting place where riders can share their passion for road racing.

A full calendar of events including film and music evenings, book and product launches, evening screenings of races, regular group rides and Rapha customer and club evenings will enable visitors to immerse themselves in road cycling throughout the summer. This unique cycling experience may be called a 'Club', but membership is free. The only qualification is an interest in the sport of road racing.

Exhibition: Monday 21st June - Sunday 4th July 2010. Open 7 days a week, 10am-5pm.

All Systems Go brings together a diverse group of artists who work in relation to physical and conceptual systems, which they have created or adapted as frameworks for artistic experimentation. Patterns, rules, collaborative techniques, interventions, mechanical systems and improvisation provide structured starting points which open up a multitude of possibilities for exciting artistic outcomes.

This show is the latest in Departure Gallery’s acclaimed series of exhibitions and residencies on The International Trading Estate, Southall. The exhibition explores the contradictions and parallels between systematic experimentation in contemporary art and the industrial systems used in the factories and distribution units surrounding our vast warehouse space.

Address: Departure Gallery, 7 Trident Way, The International Trading Estate, Southall, UB2 5LF.

Getting There: Take national rail from Paddington to Southall (12mins), then buses 105, 195, H32 or 482 to Brent Road (5mins). Cross over and walk down Brent Road until you see the estate entrance. Ask the security guards in the cabin to direct you to warehouse 7 Trident Way. Trains and buses run regularly until midnight. On the private view night there will be a free taxi shuttle from Southall Station, Merrick Road (follow signs as you exit the station).

New

This blog takes the concept of the original Golgonooza blog leaving the original purely the forum for the art writing that I have developed over the 4 years that I have worked on it, for my art writing please go to Golgonooza. The Golgonooza Scrapbook will feature looser, more random posts of things that find that I find on my journies around London and elsewhere but also online and recommendations that come my way from other sources.
