Cathedral of Shit

has taken a well earned GAP year

The Perfect Gallery

Posted by cathedralofshit on June 28, 2010

It seems Christian Jankowski has issued a kiss of death to London’s Pumphouse Gallery – after a project involving collaborating with a TV interior design show to develop and jazz up the gallery with a lick of tasteful Farrow and Ball paint and the removal of a few skirting boards, it’s closing.
Unable to secure Arts Council funding – primarily due to the hold on increasing the number of RFOs in the last year or so, and secondly because their programme, until the last couple of shows, hasn’t been worth the trip down south.

Perhaps that fancy paint job has made the local council realise the space’s earning potential as a hire-able venue…? Wedding venues anyone?

    It’s already available for weddings and bar-mitzvahs:

    I’d rather see funding go to this place rather than the Otolith Group
    PS is it true that Tony D’Offay is still putting the “ham” into Hannah Peckham?
    love,
    Dermot
