With the shadowy hand of gentrification seemingly taking more and more of London as we know it into its glassy clutches, it’s important that the people of the city occasionally take stock and celebrate those who make the capital the vibrant metropolis we all love so dearly. Thus it was with great excitement that Data Transmission received news that EndoftheLine would be presenting ‘Neverended’, a retrospective exhibition showcasing a collection of over 200 pieces by internationally acclaimed graffiti and street artists from Rockwell House’s private collection.
For two weeks in February, EndoftheLine will take over the LondonNewcastle Project Space on Redchurch Street, providing a snapshot of the last ten years of East London’s graffiti, street art and hip hop community.
Showcasing artwork from some of world’s most influential urban artists, the retrospective exhibition aims to immerse visitors in a world of graffiti, street art, music and film with a series of pop up events held in the exhibition space; including live art, life drawing classes, music showcases by the 5th Element Agency & Lyrix Organix, pop up feasts and live talks.
“This retrospective takes the pulse of East London’s urban art scene in 2016,” explains Creative Director of EndoftheLine and internationally acclaimed graffiti artist Jim Vision. “This is our personal collection which reveals the transformation of the streets of Shoreditch and the tensions between urban development and artistic freedom and represents what will be lost when everything is glass towers.”
In the market for some art yourself? A small pop-up shop will also be running for the duration of the show featuring limited edition prints by many of the featured artists alongside a host of other collectibles and a selection of customized street furniture.
