6 reviews of Idea Generation Gallery in English
This is fast becoming one of my favourite galleries.
The current exhibition is of sketches by Edwyn Collins - very touching record of his recovery following two brain haemorrhages.
Previously I visited an exhibition of portraits by Mick Rock, and looking forward to Syd Barett next month.
Very rock'n'roll ...
The entrance to The Idea Generation Gallery is a big metal door which we walked past without noticing at first! Inside, a big, wide open space with great lighting greeted us. The exhibition was on the photos and life of John 'Hoppy’ Hopkins who seemingly single handedly 'invented’ the sixties! He lived an excellent life, full of creative influnces and politicisms. Seeing pictures of the Roundhouse (Camden) before it was done up to be a music venue was great!
The exhibition was inprising and informative and I would definitely go to another exhibition a the gallery.
A great, little gallery in the heart of Shoreditch. The shows they put on here are generally pretty interesting and quite diverse and the space itself is not too cavernous but also big enough to accomodate enough people without everyone standing on each others toes.
Being where it is, it can get overrun by trendy people with ironic haircuts but my advice is get in early before the hoards get there so you can take in the exhibition in your own time.
I’ve been here twice. Once for a phenomenal exhibition of photography from the conflict in Iraq. The second time for the Root Ginger: A Study of Red Hair show - another photo exhibition, this one featuring stunning portraits of red heads.
Based on the quality of those two shows, I now try to keep up with what’s on here. Always on the look out for great photos, I’m so glad I came across Idea Generation Gallery.
This was definitely one of the more difficult exhibitions to see of late, harrowing pictures and an interesting overview of the conflict so far. Being funded by Reuters it was also reliably unbiased, and crimes on all sides of the war were shown. It’s only short, but it’s free so get along there!
