It's easy to find out about the major exhibitions: they're all over the press, and ads are plastered across the tube network and buses.
But what about the smaller shows featuring young artists and curators? The ones without a significant marketing budget? How do we find out about these?
That's where Art Licks comes in as...
...a voice for the lesser-known and under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in London.
Art Licks is celebrating London's fantastic emerging art scene through the Art Licks Weekend (which is THIS weekend).
A handy map can be used to identify the events on each day, spread right across London (with an understandably healthy cluster around Peckham — known for its concentration of emerging art).
Last year we experienced art in a living room, in the back of a van, inside a barber shop and an entire car which had been converted into a work of art.
It's impressive just how innovative young artists can be when working off a limited budget. So we're looking forward to see what this year has to offer.
