Gomez de Villaboa exhibition

Hello Guys! This is the official invitation for the Opening to my next exhibition the Friday 24th of January at the White Rabbit time (125 Stoke Newington Church St N6 0UH )

This time.. like we say in Spain… it is time to trow the house by/trough the window! Which means! Get excited and do things that you woud or should not do! Apart from the exhibition and complementary free drinks for everyone, I will prepare a few pieces and photos to Raffle so you can get some of my work almost for free!!

 Why!!?? It is all for fun and for making things easier. Art shouldn't be only on galleries and for wealthy people.. As you might know this event and the series of Xpress Yourself are sponsored by Unite the Union! All in an effort to fight against Austerity. David Shakey will delight us with some words and the DJ Femme a Barbe add more fan to the night.

 In addition! this time I will present two pictures of the series "Sexo en Nueva York" that got classified in the Desencaja Awards 2013 (Made by the Autonomic Government of Spain and that will show the series on the Archaeologic Museum of Almeria on February ) Please feel free to invite everyone to the opening. The exhibition will be on till the 4th of March. I look forward to seeing you all! Best, Francisco.
