So then, as promised yesterday, here’s some photos of what’s in the Friend and Co show in their new gallery, opening as this post goes live. These photos are from yesterday, so you’ll have to get down there to see the pieces in situ, including the Will Barras, along with all the prints too. But here’s a taste if you want to check it out from the comfort of home first.

So, after a cracking run of shows, the world’s smallest gallery moves to a bigger location finally, up where Level nightclub used to be on Park Row. Level was huge, but over the last couple of years since it was closed, they’ve completely changed the building to make loads of flats, so the space Friend and Co have isn’t gargantuan to be fair. It’s all having the finishing touches put to it right now, so here’s what you’ll see if you go before tomorrow night.
But here’s the space they’re using, well before anything was put together. Well, most of it, there’s more space (and the all essential gallery toilet at last) behind this photo too.
So, as usual, the full photos of the pieces in there are going to go live on here when doors open at 7pm tomorrow (Friday) night, but it really is going to be special this one. A bunch of top people putting some of their best and latest work into a carefully constructed show. Here’s some slightly cryptic close ups of what’s there.
This show’s got Will Barras in it too, but his work hadn’t arrived yet earlier. Some may guess why.
Incidentally, this show’s also got a shed load of prints in from the people involved. A photo of the Xenz one has hit the web already, but it’s not really of the finished thing. It’s going to be done on a range of different papers and so on, as Xenz tends to do, so this photo’s just a bit of a work in progress on the Screen One racks really.
There’s a small book put together to go with it too, lots of different images from the people in the show, but not photos of pieces in it. Well worth getting your hands on, here’s a section of a Will Barras image from it.
So, there y’go. Opening night tomorrow night, do get on down if you can.
If you can’t though, Saturday’s worth going down for too, as ‘Beak’ are holding a live album launch at the gallery. You probably haven’t heard of them, but it’s a new project from Geoff Barrow (Portishead), Matt Williams (Team Brick) and Billy Fuller (Fuzz Against Junk). Should be great given the line up, here’s the flyer.
