Mike Ballard – The All of Everything

The final exhibition to take place at the Arts Gallery, before the building is demolished for Crossrail, is set to be fittingly epic. The gallery are to present the largest and most ambitious work yet by acclaimed artist Mike Ballard; from 10 December the Arts Gallery will become The All of Everything, a specially commissioned work which will turn the entire gallery space into an all-encompassing installation covering floors, walls and ceilings featuring the artist’s flamboyant vision of art history.

Here is what Mike had to say about the show:

“as it is the last show at the Arts Gallery, I wanted to go big, to give the gallery a good send off, by acknowledging all of its surfaces, preparing the space before it goes into the ‘other world’. With imagery from my own personal art history and music that has inspired my work, including flamboyant time travellers Sun Ra and RAMM:ELL:ZEE, I have selected guardians for the gallery as it goes to the other side of time.”
Howaboutno has been down to the gallery and had a sneak peak and judging from his photos above it's gonna be a fantastic and historic show.

Private view, 6 – 8pm, 9 December 2009, rsvp to a.castleton@arts.ac.uk
