Thamesmead Texas presents ‘Moloko Plus Six’ named after the infamous cocktail featured in ‘A Clockwork Orange’ where much of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece is set; representing six artists based in Thamesmead our rendition is a milk-based drink laced with six secret ingredients. Over the course of the summer, we invite three artist pairings to present their practice in the Thamesmead Texas project space. Pull up a stool at the Thamesmead Texas bar and order a drink of the ‘Moloko Plus Six’ whilst overlooking the live demolition of the Clockwork Orange ‘Flat Block Marina’, more commonly known as Binsey Walk.

About Thamesmead Texas:
Thamesmead Texas is a nomadic artist-run initiative based in Thamesmead, South-East London. Originally operating from a living room, we set up to bring together the new community of Bow Arts Trust artists, who moved to Thamesmead in 2018. Anchored by an art bar, we are led by the necessity to be social and organise public exhibitions and events. ‘Moloko Plus Six’ is our third series of exhibitions in Thamesmead, celebrating the reopening of the iconic Lakeside Centre.
Also opening 3 August, 12-6pm:
On the ground floor of the Lakeside Centre will be an exhibition of contemporary Printmaking from four artists brought together by their new surroundings in Thamesmead. The works displayed will be 'work in progress', true to form of the developing backdrop of Thamesmead.
