Capsule: Exile & Mainstream

Exile and Mainstream 016
Originally uploaded by SgtRock333.
Hurry down to the Kemistry Gallery in Charlotte Road, Shoreditch to catch this all-too-brief exhibition by LCC'ers, including Mandatory Thinking, featuring meditations on what is to be and or in exile and or in the mainstream.

The mostly type-driven responses are stimulating - in particular, Jon 'Stace's creation of the new font 'Pop Culture' is a witty reposte to the bulbous idiocy of much of what passes for 'mainstream' comment, while Joel Foster's view that one can be as much in exile even when located in the centre of the mainstream is insightful.

The only disappointment was that I could not find use of the word 'banish'd' anywhere in the exhibition. It runs until 5 August (this coming Friday).
