It would appear that the autumn/winter season of exhibitions has kicked off again with some fantastic shows currently running such as Barry McGee at Modern Art, Graffiti Legends at the Outside Institute and Geoff McFetridge at the Kemistry Gallery.

This week will see not one but 3 new exhibitions opening in central London. As mentioned already on this blog the Wear it with Pride show opens to the public on Friday the 30th at Phonica Records on Poland Street.

Also opening this week is a show from ELK with a show featuring 20 years of unseen photographs.This show is only set to run for 2 or 3 days so you gotta be quick to catch it at a secret location in Soho.
