Artists behind bars
Friday 29 January 2016, 8pm – late
Artists Behind Bars, at The Horse Hospital
Kitty Finer presents Artists Behind Bars; a group show, where for one night shift only – the bar is the work of art, the artist is the bartender and the spectator is the punter. X Marks the Bökship, Kitty Finer, Marcia Farquhar, Jane Howard and Tai Shani will be building, installing, hosting and running their own bars. The Horse Hospital will be home to this collection of one night only bars – creating a total installation within the space that is one of central London’s last bastions of independent, experimental and DIY culture
The Bökship cocktail bar ‘Push Bar to Open’ will be propping up the Horse Hospital tonight so come along and do some bar crawling. All money goes to hellraising for the HH.
‘Push Bar to Open’ is a pop-up poor mans champagne and cocktail bar, which started life as a hatch bar in a fire escape beneath the billboard at X Marks the Bökship at Matt’s Gallery. At book launches artists are asked to suggest a cocktail to tie in with their book that is served at the event. Head bar tenders are Eleanor Vonne Brown and Daniel James Wilkinson who have been mixing their drinks for years.
