Indigo Octagon present ‘If A Picture Paints A Thousand Words Then Why Can’t I Paint’ at The Works Gallery, 13th-23rd November. It’s the first exhibition by Indigo Octagon, a collective of Birmingham based artists, designers and makers. Featuring Chris Cowdrill, Hugh Marwood, Shaun Morris, Andrew Smith and Craig Underhill.
They are hosting a private view on Friday 16th November from 6-9pm, where you can meet the artists, watch a musical performance by artists Andy Smith and Shaun Morris (composed in response to the exhibition) and see local band Box Of Knives. The Works is quite a mystery to me (and it doesn’t have a website) but for a bit more information about the exhibition, check Indigo Octagon’s facebook for updates. It’s good to see new and unusual things cropping up, and I quite like the raw unpolished/fanzine-esque style of their exhibition programme.
