The Maverick Expo is curated by Joseph Latimore gallery owner, curator, collector, artist and film maker. He has been active in the New York art scene for many years, managing and founding renowned galleries Passerby, Panda and Gallery Sensei. These spaces were galleries and late night hangouts for New York's vibrant community of artists. It is this mix of quality, informality and surprise that The Maverick Expo will introduce to London this December.

The event will feature the artwork of over 30 emerging artists from seven different countries.

Featured artists include, Animamus Art Salon, Aurelie Freoua, Ben Brunnemer, Damon Johnson, Derek Des Islets, Elena Moaty, Eli Elysee, Holly Anne Buck, Lotte Karlsen, Michael Amter, Philippe Nuell, Sarah Anderson, Sylva Dean, Ventiko, Yuliya V Krylova, Zdzislaw V.

In addition, there will be a curated selection of cinema works by up and coming filmmakers and screenings of select short films by Andy Warhol.

The event will include a program of music including local singer songwriter Lisa Marini, performance, and talks.

Every evening there will be a series of DJ driven sundown dance parties in a 2,000 square foot space above the exhibition.

Free Talk

Join Dig the City Coffee Morning Talk and hear about Emmeline Pankhurst’s links to Alexandra Park and how she inspired the Park’s artistic regeneration.

Alexandra Arts is an artist-led collective based in Manchester’s Alexandra Park, founded in 2010 by Artist Lotte Karlsen. During Autumn 2014, Alexandra Arts curated the widely successful Pankhurst in the Park programme and are currently planning for its return in 2015.

Pankhurst in the Park is an Arts Council England funded programme of free events, artist commissions and an international artist residency. It celebrates Alexandra Park’s rich historical connection to the iconic leader of the Suffragette Movement, Emmeline Pankhurst, who was born and bred only yards from the Park in the neighbouring Moss Side estate.
