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.

Winter_Pride_2014_logo.5.1Baby, it’s cold outside… Get ready for Winter Pride UK on 8 February 2014!

Hidden in an underground maze of Victorian warehouse vaults in east London lies a winter paradise. Step over the cobblestones of London’s Tobacco Docks, and be transported back in time to a forbidden Victorian marketplace and funfair, full of tattoos, fire, art and music for one night only.

TRANSITION COLLECTIVE have been invited to participate in London’s first ever Winter Pride! The TC artists will create a large scale installation at the heart of this awe inspiring venue, explore an affront to Narnia.The flipside of a contained delusion of dubious intent. The roles we play with each and every day, the grey area between fiction and reality. The elements, colours, shapes and sounds we choose to heighten and express our inner child, our inner goddess, our inner king, our inner queen, our inner beast. The fantasy made real, to the max. Who are you? Why do you do what you do? How are you writing the story of your life? What are the mythologies from your past that shape you today, what do you bury, what do you honour, what do you warp into wondrous disguises? What twists and turns you underground, overground, through secret passages and ejector seats. One door closes another opens. Mirror mirror on the wall…
