+ PLUS ART PROJECTS at the Mayor's Parlour, 2012

Private view and Frieze week party - Friday 12 October 8 until late
Wednesday 10 October - Saturday 10 November 2012


The fifth annual Frieze Week exhibition from Plus Art Projects at the
Mayor's Parlour showcases bold and unconventional works by 67 artists,
straight from their studios.

The Mayor’s Parlour is a new arts club situated in the 1930s old Bow
Town Hall in East London. Established and converted to a high modern
specification by neonist and art fabricator Kerry Ryan, the new Mayor's
Parlour retains the fundamentals and elegance of the original interior.
It opens with this diverse exhibition curated and produced by the
renowned London based outfit Plus Art Projects.

The 2012 show includes a souvenir from the Chapman Brothers’
controversial Hell sculpture, brand new neon artworks by Tracey Emin,
Gavin Turk and David Batchelor, taxidermy sculpture by Polly Morgan, and
a myriad of paintings which range in subject and scale. Pieces are
numbered, not conventionally listed so the viewer encounters the work
directly, without knowing authorship.

Plus Art Projects has a history of bringing together artists working
across many media. The works here include painting, sculpture, neon,
photography, taxidermy, film, drawing and mixed media.
