Phil Baines (1958-2024)

Tribute

It came as a shock to learn that Phil Baines had passed away on 19 January. Phil had been unwell for some time, having been diagnosed with Ataxia and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) – two degenerative nervous conditions – in recent years. But just a couple of months ago, in November, I was with him at The Lethaby Gallery, Central St Martins to celebrate the opening of his survey exhibition Extol.

in Sorting Britain: The Power Of Postcodes at The Postal Museum

Alison Turnbull is featured in Sorting Britain: The Power of Postcodes at The Postal Museum. This exhibition celebrates the story of a postal innovation that changed life in Britain. From the price of your house to range of health care you can access, postcodes impact people daily. They developed in the mid-20th century to help sort and process the post. Since then, they have become much more than that.

Melanie Jackson

Spekyng Rybawdy, 22nd April – 28th May 2022

Block 336 is very pleased to be showing Spekyng Rybawdy, the latest and most ambitious incarnation of Melanie Jackson’s ongoing project exploring the transgressive narratives and explicit symbolism of Medieval pilgrim bawdy badges. Through a carnival of colourful, erotically charged characters, Spekyng Rybawdy encourages us to re-examine not only our ideas about who took part in the production and circulation of imagery in the medieval period – but also how this might enable us to reconsider the origins of dissenting representations, sexual politics and our attitudes and behaviours today.

Michael Curran

A Voice Through The Ether

Read Michael Curran in conversation with Chris Valentine. Curran explores the themes and dreams of Valentine Lyons. Trish Lyons is a long term collaborator of Curran's. The two performed Karaoke Macbeth at the Macbeth public house in Hoxton St in 1999. Lyons consequently appeared in both Love in A Cold Climate and most notably singing in Curran's Look What The Done To My Song at Matt's Gallery in 2007. Lyons also wrote the text St. Cecilia for the show's notes.
