MICK’S “DIRTY LAUNDRY”

WEAPON OF CHOICE PRESENTS ! . . .
Opening preview 19th Feb, 6-10pm at the WoC Gallery. Drinks provided
Weapon of Choice Gallery presents Dirty Laundry, an exhibition of recent artwork by Mick Hockney. His work is a response to a year of rolling news, from politics to climate change, from corporate stupidity to prejudice. Instead of hurling a brick at the TV, he aims his brush at a range of targets, attacking hubris with humour. He has developed a direct graphic style that makes use of hand cut stencils, flat colour and freehand painting. Mick airs his Dirty Laundry in public from 19th February at WOC.
Show runs until the 21st March 2010
Mick Hockney – Biography:
Mick was born in the Fens of Cambridgeshire. In his late teens he packed his paints and pencils and left to study at various art colleges across the land, eventually settling in London where he joined the creative bedlam that was Spitting Image. After several years he moved on and headed west to Bristol to work in the world of Animation. A few years ago he decided to concentrate on his own artwork using images and ideas to highlight an array of social issues from politics to the environment, leavened with a healthy dose of irony and a dash of gallows humour. After a hard day at the easel Mick enjoys nothing more than kicking back with his pipe and listening to his sublime collection of free jazz and Captain Beefheart records.

Once again we are closing the road alongside the pub and are hosting Glos-tonbury (Gloucester Road’s answer to Glastonbury) – with live Music, Graffiti, Skateboarding, and Breakdancing. Hopefully no rain, certainly no mud.

On the Friday night we have First Degree Burns – http://www.myspace.com/firstdegreeburnsuk – throwing us into the party mode ready for the weekend. £3 entry, doors 8pm, bar til 1am.

On the Saturday – Midday-6pm…

We have… music from:

DJs: Skint, Rogue, Awkward, Ben One, Mr Fantastic
– Playing summer party beats and lots of Hip-Hop to keep the skaters rolling and the Breakers breakin.

We have… live breakdancing from the Bristol B-boy/B-girl convention. Competition heats throughout the day.

We have… the Golden Lion half-pipe being skated by some of Bristol’s finest. Best trick competition throughout the day.

We have… live Graffiti from:

Lokey, Mr Jago, China Mike, RichT, Ghostboy, Dicey (painting a van), 2Keen, 3rd Eye, Mr Riks, Mad Mao, Awkward, and many more

We also have… Clothing stalls from:

Avalaan, Dutty Girl, Butchi & Gosmos and Zedhead

Plus… a BBQ, selling burgers.

Then in the evening from 6pm we close all that down and bring the party inside (so as not to piss the neighbours off) where we will have live music from:

Vertebrae – http://www.myspace.com/vertebrae
and
Scubaroots – http://www.myspace.com/scubaroots

£3 entry from 7pm, bar til 1am.

Then, on Sunday, in the evening, we are going to host our first charity art auction – Off the Record, there will be 40 12″ records that have been decorated (painted, graffed, drawn on, etc) by 40 of Bristol’s finest artists including all the Glos-tonbury artists plus:

Cheo, Haka, Adam Mclevey, Mick Hockney, Soker, Andy Council, Phil Harvey, Paris, Lulu, Blythe Pepino, Hugo Fat, Jon5, and many more

We’ve got music from Fuzia – http://www.myspace.com/fuziabristol

It’s free entry, but please bring lots of money for the auction as it all goes to the Mind charity – which is a very good cause. Bar til midnight.
