Taking us to the next level in the cold breath of morning, our artists transition from the Tobacco Dock blaze to the cool heights of 2 Clove Crescent, East India Dock. A month long exhibition giving the Winter Pride artists a luxury showcase in this iconic multi-level location.

The inaugural Winter Pride UK launched at Tobacco Dock on Saturday 8th February 2014. This historic event featured an art competition for emerging artists, the Winter Pride UK Art Awards 2014, and a breathtaking exhibition of installation art and sculpture from a diverse group of international artists, now showing at East India Dock.

Caitlin Mavrolean, the Creative Director behind the annual Art for Youth exhibition at the Royal College of Art, has given the Winter Pride artists the opportunity to exhibit as part of a large new experimental group show entitled Office Sessions in a vast disused office block.

The Winter Pride artists will inject moments of colour and passion into the eerie hide-and-seek corporate stillness. An exhibition curated by Simon Tarrant and Yvette Blackwood, taking over the whole of the 4th floor. A brave new Eden. Adult playgrounds and abandonment. Separation and togetherness. Love and longing. Pride and prejudice. Madness and majesty. Seek out secret performances in hidden rooms.Take a second bite of the apple.
