Last Chance To See: Living London
176Gallery.jpg

Five minutes walk from Chalk Farm Tube station, or Kentish Town Overground if you dare, stands the 176 Gallery - a former Methodist church turned exhibition centre.

The building is worth a trip in its own right, but make sure you get along in the next 24 hours to catch a psychogeographic video installation from Gerry Fox.

Living London has been showing since late January, but reaches the end of its run on Sunday. Each video takes the visitor on a ramble around London. Join the artist on peregrinations through Camden with some local yoof, a head-on charge through the Notting Hill Carnival, and a then-and-now trek to the siege of Sidney Street.

In the main gallery, Fox places the viewer inside a cube of video for a virtual wanderungen through London at night, plunging into the Thames and surfacing in Nunhead Cemetery. We've all had evenings like that.

Why go for one Sunday stroll, when you can fit 10 into an hour?

176 Gallery is at 176 Prince of Wales Road, NW5 3PT. Entry is £5, which includes membership, or free to local residents and all the usual concession groups.

I can't wait for the last day. I imagine a tour of living London to not include the stench that engulfed it on Friday. Or is that another tour on to itself?
