#ntb_show : 3rd December 2015: Dean’s latest exhibition Never Turn Back was unveiled at theprintspace in London to great acclaim. Jason Holmes from The Huffington Post proclaimed it’s, “A Great Escape In The Frame”. His article clearly expressing the significance of this body of work.
This ‘First Thursday’ in Shoreditch was certainly a night to remember, theprintspace gallery was packed and buzzing with a great atmosphere. Redchurch Brewery provided great tasty beers and Dean DJed for most of the night bringing the sonics in line with the images and setting the tone for the London edition of the exhibition.
The Never Turn Back After Show party kicked into gear just down the road at Arts Club East in association with Jug Jaws & NTSOBC / Punk Rock Blues. The After Show became much more than just a follow on... It came alive with a reading of the Never Turn Back Poems by Aimée Keeble and the first public performance by IDA (Chris and Steph who appear in the Never Turn Back collection have put to one side their band Kill It Kid and are now a duo called IDA .. You heard it here first…they are AMAZING!!!!) The night continued into the wee small hours with Dean and fellow ‘Black Cat DJ’ Sonny ‘Scully’ Evans spinning Rhythm & Blues and Northern Soul, what a night!
A little more information about the design of the show: Dean continued the design collaboration with Mason Wells from Bibliothéque, the aesthetic environment of the printspace was modified and a unique broadsheet free publication was the result.
Many thanks to all the people who came to the show over the exhibition period and thanks also to the partners who’s kind support made it possible:
