Gold, the final four day splash of a show in the space for this year so they say, the final show of what has been a rather positive year down in that basement art gallery down beneath that busy street over in Dalston, London, N16. BSMT Space have had a rather good year, somewhere in the middle of that year they celebrated being their underground space for twelve months and then they carried on filling the basement space with a whole array of stimulating art. The focus tends to lean towards the urban side of life, the art of the street, slices of graff, street art, their most recent triumph was a show called Right Side of The Tracks – Rocco, Marr and Chaos, and a gallery cut in half by rail-yard fencing and the living smell of spray paint – although thoughts letting of “the bombs” at BSMT Space are not afraid to mix things up when they need to. And art does need to be mixed up, rules are for breaking, now and again in needs to be Debased. Gold is the final show of the year at Dalston’s BSMT Space
“BSMT SPACE presents ‘Gold’ our final show of 2016.
