EAST POP is a dynamic new venture taking the extraordinary creativity which exists in East London on tour to West London, Berlin, Edinburgh and beyond…
Red Gallery have been documenting the East London art scene and in 2010 produced the East End Promise exhibition and catalogue, a record of the area from 1985 – 2000, created by those that lived through this transformative time.
EAST POP is a living document of what is happening now and gives exposure to art and design collectives who have used their strength as groups of creative individuals to produce dynamic exhibitions, live art events, products and publications.
It is an exciting opportunity to bring East London artists and designers together and we believe EAST POP will have cultural historical significance in years to come.
EAST POP is a project initiated by Red Gallery with artist/curators Alice Herrick and Kate Kotcheff.

Catlin Art Prize 2011
32 Rivington Street
Exhibition open to the public from 19/05/2011 to 22/05/2011
Established in 2007, the Catlin Art Prize recognises and supports the development of recent art graduates in the UK. Following their final degree shows, artists are selected for their potential to make a significant mark in the art world during the next decade and invited to demonstrate their progress by presenting a new body of work at the Catlin Art Prize exhibition, held twelve months on from graduation.
Based on this criteria, a panel of judges will award one artist with a cheque for £5,000. This year we are delighted to welcome the collector Richard Greer, galleriest Simon Oldfield and curator Julia Royse on board to deliberate over the winner.
To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the award, the current exhibition features five new graduates selected from THE CATLIN GUIDE 2011, alongside past winners and former participants. The 2011 finalists are: Leah Capaldi, Noemie Goudal, Darren Harvey-Regan, Russell Hill and Juliette Losq.
Also exhibiting are Alex Ball, William Bradley, Jasmina Cibic, Adam Dix, Paul Greenleaf, Reynir Hutber, Sarah Lederman, Will Martyr, David A. Smith, Alex Virji, Brigitte Williams and Miyo Yoshida.
This year, a supplementary award has been introduced. All 17 participating artists have been invited to submit a written proposal for The Catlin Commission, a £3,000 fund towards a new addition to the Catlin art collection.
