Goldsmiths Photography Degree Show

We cordially invite you to the annual degree show at Goldsmiths, our intellectual shelter and creative stage, where we will be showcasing some of our own work, alongside that of an array of up-and-coming photographers, including our precious – and previously presented – artist Geiste Marija Kincinaityte. Goldsmiths, University of London, is a leading institute […]

AFTER THE VOID

GG’s Halea teams up with Maria Vega of the Ministry of Nomads for an exhibition that explores states of consciousness which emerge from the quiet stillness and ecstasy of the free mind. Diverse in their medium and technicality, the artworks and performances draw inspiration from moments of self-transcendence and eminent awareness that are not subordinate […]

Gold in the Crucible

For three days the Hoxton Arches were the site of the extraordinary exhibition Gold in the Crucible which was a kind of symbolic coming of age for the participating artists, in form of a continuation of the sculptural exploration with trans:form earlier this year. Curated by Hanna Laura Kaljo the exhibition was the processual result of the six artists […]

DIY Taxidermy with Charlie Tuesday Gates

To drink on a Tuesday night would be the absolute last thing on my mind (#SchoolNight), and for others, it would be to attend an interactive DIY taxidermy session at The Book Club with artist Charlie Tuesday Gates — which I had the immense pleasure of doing. Charlie has more charisma in her surgical-gloved pinky […]

NOBODY KNOWS IT’S YOURS

In the same way it would be terrible for you to miss your period/flight to see your lover/your mom’s birthday, it would’ve been terrible to miss the launch of NOBODY KNOWS IT’S YOURS ! Hence why if you happened to, we have this consolatory blog entry. Nobody Knows It’s Yours – GRASSGRASS’ official life+++style blog […]

Mike Stout designs for Paranoid Mandroid

Few people one arbitrarily meets are as exciting and talented as Mike Stout… it’s almost esteem-shattering. This is a name you’ll have to keep an eye out for, or maybe two, or hire several professional spies to keep tabs – whatever floats your boat. Mike’s work is at once obscure, surreal, comedic and controversial – […]

FRIEZE l a n d

Being awkard Alice for a day: Hours and hours of wandering and floating around, examining, searching, interpreting, socializing, coffee drinking, questioning, recording, perceiving, and note taking (…etc etc) now provisionally result in this brief visual digestion à la GG of London’s magnificent FRIEZE Art Fair – that for the first time presents FRIEZE MASTERS, the new […]

Mat Collishaw, Other Criteria

Nothing makes you forget you’re not in New Cross faster than strolling around Green Park in pastel evening light; your senses not being divided between avoiding mystery-puddles and crushing chicken bones underfoot. On an ordinary occasion, I would no doubt feel extremely estranged had I not been heading to Hirst’s (gallery, provokingly christened) Other Criteria […]

Dead Flies Damien, Tate Modern

Oh yes, you knew this one was coming ! And at the risk of being obscenely predictable, it would be blasphemy to omit writing about Hirst’s retrospective and first solo exhibition at the Tate Modern. From hearsay, one is often inclined to think Hirst a commercial cunt, or have mixed feelings at very least. Likely […]

LARRY IN BERLIN

Larry is back! With an array of simultaneously moving and disturbing photographs that question our perception and expectation of adolescence, Larry Clark presents raw images of uninhibited sexuality and drug (ab)use, creating a sphere free of judgment for the protagonists. “Far removed from any form of voyeurism, he himself is a fundamental part of the scene […]
