Since its inception, the Bethlehem Boys Club has been exclusively developed within the town of
Stoke Newington, seeking to spread its message to the young men & women from all towns and all boroughs.
The Bethlehem Boys Club recognises contemporary Art (display, practice & consumption) as an integral part of socio-political diversion. It understands that all Art should be presented to our children in a more coherent, tolerant and organised manner.
To this end the Bethlehem Boys Club will seize control of the of the former ‘Sea Cadets’ institute, now redeveloped and renamed ‘F’, for a period of ten days to administer a disciplined program of educational enlightenment within the formal constraints of a group exhibition.
The following artists have been elected to exhibit in this group exhibition in pursuance of the B.B.C. ideal.
James Cauty - Billy Childish - Harry Adams - Chris Jones - Jamie Reid -David Mackintosh - Dan Cimmermann - David Dipré - Andy Wicks - Frank Lawsaws - James Jessop - Pete Bennett - Neal Jones & Alex Daw
