Transition Kentish Town have organised a contemporary art exhibition at their pop-up shop on Fortess Road.
I am a big fan of pop-up shops at the best of times (anything’s better than a big empty space), but this initiative to bring new art onto the High Street seems particularly worthwhile. The Transition movement itself is really interesting: unlike lots of environmental campaigns which take a shock and awe approach, Transition promotes small, positive, local ways to bring about change, while doing good for the community.
The exhibition takes its inspiration from Gillian Tindall’s excellent book, “The Fields Beneath”, which uses Kentish Town as a case study to examine how layers of history and human patterns build up to make places.
I’d say it’s well worth a visit. Take a look at their flyer for more information.
