SIM SMITH is pleased to announce a new performance event and installation by British artist Jonathan McCree and dance company New Movement Collective. The installation, featuring live dance performance, painting, film and soundscape will be on view from 7 to 30 October.

Arch 147, Newport Street, SE11 6AY

Private view: 6 October 2016, 8 p.m.

Exhibition: 7 – 30 October 2016, 12-6 p.m. Tues-Sun

Performances: 6, 7, 8 October 2016, 8 p.m.

Do Be Do Be Do…, is a work about what happens when the language of painting and dance become intertwined and share a space with an audience.

The installation is inspired by its location and local history. On the southern bank of the Thames to the east of Vauxhall Bridge, from the early 18th century until the middle of the 19th century, could be found the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. There were avenues of trees, ornamental gardens and pavilions of culture. During the daytime it was a respectable place, a place for a family day out perhaps. Yet after dark it took on a more uneasy air. The technology, design, music and art were pioneering and the famous artificial illuminations would have created an atmosphere of dramatic escapism, a sensory dreamlike world. It is hard to imagine today the impact the experience would have had. It was a raucous place, but also a public art gallery and concert venue with paintings by Hogarth and music by Handel amongst others.

Sim Smith Gallery presents a collaboration between Jonathan McCree & Timorous Beasties during The London Design Festival (13-21 Sep)

A collaboration between Sim Smith Gallery and Timorous Beasties will see the unveiling of new works by artist Jonathan McCree this weekend during the London Design Festival.

Using a selection of collaged Timorous Beasties wallpapers as his canvas, McCree will exhibit works of varying scales that wildly interweave between abstraction and expressionism. With work that combines the contemporary and the historical with references to nature and society, McCree’s paintings are an obvious pairing with the surreal and provocative work of Timorous Beasties. Known for his complex array of arrangements and exploration of repetition and hand drawn motifs, this collaboration will draw on the ancient, the contemporary and abstraction.
