Showcase Gallery/Platform 72: July 27- August 16, 2012
Last week I headed to the launch of a new commercial space, Showcase Gallery. Platform 72 sells amazing designer wares and takes no commission on sales. They have turned their back space into a gallery space to exhibit mid-career artists. The first show is selected works from Tina Fiveash.
Being already familiar with Fiveash's work it was great to see work from her 2011 Grace series and work from her series-in-progress, Pin-ups. The space is small but workable- I'd like to go back when there aren't so many people there and take a better look. I think it's great that the space is diversifying and opening up more possibilities for artists to exhibit. Just a few doors down from He Made She Made and the The Fortynine's new studio, this little section of Oxford Street is turning into a hub of creativity and innovation.
