LE GUN #4 promises a rich and slippery harvest of pictures and words, a catch that includes Polish artist-crustacean Andrzej Klimowski, Will Sweeney, creator of 'Tales of Green Fuzz', visionary draughtsman Paul Noble, and writing from beat generation expert Barry Miles and dandy of the underworld Sebastian Horsley, as well as fresh fruit from young novelist Richard Milward, grubby texts from Iain Sinclair and the 'Hunter S Thompson of Hartlepool', Michael Smith.
The exhibition will feature the collective's large scale drawings, forming a physical embodiment of the work found on the pages of LE GUN. These drawings, some up to 10m in length, are collaborative, narrative panoramas that link together to tell a curious tale...
LE GUN 'THE FAMILY' will also feature a 'salon wall' of works by artists working with LE GUN, and our cardboard-constructed 'arts club' installation that will host a wonderful, eccentric bar created by The Dog & Wardrobe plus performance and screening area.
The exhibition will run for just over one week and in that time a number of events such as music nights and short film screenings will be programmed, creating a temporary arts club. Highlights include screening the 'Essentials' programme of seminal short film curated by the Independent Cinema Office. This will coincide with Soup Session, hosted by Jessica Antwi-Boasiako.


After the exhibition Private View at Rochelle School a motley parade will be making its way round the corner to Cargo, led by the Trans-Siberian Marching Band...
Thus will ensue a spectacular afterparty until the early hours, with live entertainments from the bands Agaskodo Teliverek and Beggars, plus the charming disk jockeys cum U-boat commandants Nervous Steven and Rough Trade's finest Mr Phil Adams. Its a fiver to get in but if you come to the exhibition first you will get in for free; hope to see you there...
