If you go down to the Old Truman Brewery, look out! Not for roaming chickens (ha ha! that’d be hilarious…), but a showcase of new British art and design talent. It wont cost you a penny, it’s in its eleventh year and it’s only the UK’s bloody largest to date!
Free Range gives us eight whole weeks of fashion and design, graphics, photography, art, interiors and moving and still image – each get their own week, mmm hmm, in that order too.
The moving image exhibition is a newcomer to the visually imaginative line-up and the fashion and design category returns after its flourishing debut last year. ‘New Blood’ also sees the collaboration between Free Range and D&AD to present the annual showcase of the best art grads.
Hosted in East London’s innovative creative district, Free Range attracted more than 100,000 visitors in 2010 and they’re likely to top that this year; so let’s welcome summer, grab ourselves a bagel and something chilled from Brick Lane and catch the bonanza between May 31st to July 25th.
