ORGAN THING: Glory holes, art shows, Latency and the opening of John Lee Bird’s latest Before Encore…

Art show openings, events, East London, Friday night, 20th June, JOHN LEE BIRD‘s fifth Before Encore show at the Liquor Store, Dalston, LATENCY, a group show of relatively new artists at Vyner Street Gallery (over the street from Cultivate).

We gave you some words about the John Lee Bird show a couple of days ago,  we’ll let the photos tell you (some of) last night’s story….

The Latency show featured ELIOT ALLISON, SARAH BENDING, GEORGIA CLAYTON-JEEVES, ISABELLE COLE, NAOMI ELLIS, XILESIA DWYER HENRY, LEVI NAIDU-MITCHELL, KERRY O’CONNOR, ADAM PATTERSON, RUBY REVELL, SANDHYA STEARMAN, JESSIE STEVENSON, AIDAN STRUDWICK, JOSHUA TABTI and YI ZHANG

The before encore series is an ongoing project that documents and highlights the friends and performers that John Lee Bird meets. They’re performers, club kids, drag queens, designers, musicians and visual artists. They’re the people who inspire him, friends, collaborators and innovators; people he wants to shine a light on.

John Lee Bird sets out to display each of the subjects as icons. ‘These are the faces that make the City alive! These are portraits of people who are sometimes on the fringe yet are significant players in what shapes the mainstream,’ says John Lee Bird. ‘Through the before encore series I hope to highlight their impact and importance as well as celebrate their spirit and character in technicolour.’
