❶ late night tales

on the first thursday of every month
the galleries and museums of
east London open their doors late
for a chance to see some amazing
art, culture and events after hours:

our mystery tour began with
'so the wind won't blow it all away'
a private view at East Gallery:
.... in front of you looking inward 
I'm still ....
by Joanna Burejza
the naked form blurred but still 
like richter and bacon before her:
b.- d. working title 
by maeve berry
a hand portrait can be just
as expressive as the face:
family obscured by sam taylor
discarded film negatives
reclaimed and destroyed 
to create a photograph of abstract warmth:
it was busy in the gallery
so we headed off to eat:
these streets are full of gifts:
around every corner:
you never know what you'll find:
irreducible complexity by andrea hasler:
quick march to the whitechapel gallery
richard of york gave battle in vain
selected from over 13,500 works from the 
Government Art Collection
by the artist Cornelia Parker:
a curious display of colour coded art:
which wall would you gravitate to?
yellow/green ....
odeon by bridget smith
shelf like no.5 by david batchelor
poor thing by gary hume
work no.253:things 2000 by martin creed

the gallery was closing as the clock struck 9
we strolled through the empty market
to find free books for all:
selecting as many as I could carry
we headed home with a heartful of art:
