‘Follow Your Art’ is a pretty new idea introduced by Anti-Slavery International consisting of multi-art events to raise awareness and funds for the charity, while at the exact same time supporting street artists and the notion of street art. The debut of ‘Follow Your Art – Street Art Against Slavery’ was final October at Village Underground in the lead up to Frieze Art Fair, and was a roaring success, exactly where £30,000 was raised for Anti-Slavery International and the awareness spread amongst many.
Following on from this success in bringing Anti-Slavery International to the forefront of contemporary culture, they are in the process of planning one more occasion that will take spot on 3rd April 2013. Partnering with Village Underground and continued help from Moniker Projects, endorsements by Sotheby’s, as properly as new located assistance from the renowned gallery StolenSpace, we are set to generate a equivalent, even far more exciting event.
Street art remains a large focus with pieces developed or donated by a select few of London’s most influential street artists such as Remi Rough, Vinnie Nylon, RYCA, Pure Evil, Dscreet, James Jessop, Benjamin Murphy and Jo Peel. As well as this exhibition, ‘Follow Your Art’ will see the premier of an edit from the short film ‘Dots’, an ongoing film project seeking at the roots of graffiti and street art with a concentrate on the notoriously influential book Subway Art (1984), filmed and directed by street artist Dscreet.
Lastly, music will be a major draw with the timeless DJ Grooverider headlining the evening and bringing in the crowds.
