The Idol Hours- more than 30 artists recreate Iconic historical artworks

Its almost time! The Idol Hours opens at London Miles Gallery on November 12th 2010 and will be on display until December 1st 2010. For those of you that do not know, I am the curator of London Miles Gallery- this exhibition is the largest group show I have ever personally organized and am super excited about it as its a wonderful theme and the artists taking part are from a wonderful fresh contemporary art movement Im proud to exhibit in London.

Many for the first time! All the artists have been asked to take inspiration from a piece of art from before WWII and recreate it in their own way. As we take a look back in history, we are not only paying homage to the great master painters that have inspired us, but also shinning the spotlight on a new generation of artists that are truly as talented.
