Frieze First Thursday Exhibition Tour

Date: 
Thursday, October 3, 2019
Opening Hours: 
6-8pm
Address: 
The Nunnery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ

For Frieze Week's First Thursday, join Nunnery Gallery Director Sophie Hill for an exclusive exhibition tour unpacking the poignant themes that this year’s Bow Open works explore.

Artist Carey Young has chosen 19 artists for Bow Arts’ annual Open Show with a call for works that respond to “our current political moment”. Choosing from some of the charity’s near 500 studio holders, many of whom are showing new pieces, the result is a selection of artistic works which engage with varied political themes including politics, migration, gender identity, borders and climate change; poignantly and critically addressing some of today’s most pressing cultural conversations. 

The tour will begin at 7pm. The exhibition will be open 6-8pm. 

Tickets are free
