A new show from the Cutupcollective will open later next week and will centre predominantly around the local area of Hackney Wick- its streets, abandoned buildings, wastelands and scrap-yards. This, now largely fenced off, area is in a huge state of flux with the onset of the upcoming 2012 London Olympics displacing and destroying its current desolate existence as a place of creativity, play and freedom with control, surveillance, leisure and eventual homogenisation and gentrification. The work installed around the area intends to celebrate the area as it is, and was, and to act as a "sending off" or marker for the erasure of its history.

The exhibition centres around a fixed indoor base, that acts as a venue for the private view and to show film works, installations and maps listing the locations for the outdoor works.

More details about the opening night on 19th July will be available on the website the day before:


PRIVATE VIEW - Thursday 19th Jul 7pm - 11 pm
