To mark the beginning of a new year, October Gallery will show a collection of their most prominent artists from February 7th – March 31st 2008.

This show represents the culmination of 29 years of work by the October Gallery in seeking out and promoting artists from around the world, who, as well as representing the forefront of their own particular cultures, are at the same time, alive to the shifting currents of other cultures.

London audiences will see the stunning work of El Anatsui, whose magnificent metal bottle top cloths wowed the public at Venice Biennale 2007, as well as the vibrant canvases by Austrian artist Elisabeth Lalouschek, the legend who is William S. Burroughs and the British artist Gerald Wilde, whose show of paintings opened the October Gallery in 1979. Further pieces will include works from the Mylar Chamber of Ira Cohen – surreal photographs of the late 60’s and the beautiful works of the late Guyan artist Aubrey Williams.

Winter Show 2008 will provide a truly international insight into art from across the globe.
