Dean Blunt to show 'New Paintings' at Hackney gallery

The ever-unpredictable artist announces an exhibition of his visual art.

Dean Blunt’s ‘New Paintings’ are to be shown from October 2 to December 2 at Hackney gallery [space], where he held his ‘Brixton 28s’ exhibition last year.

As Dummy reports (and as we’ve come to expect from the former Hype Williams musician), there’s not much more information to go on, but the poster pairs a couple of simple black and white symbols – the crossed fingers of the National Lottery logo and the clasped hands representing the Commission for Racial Equality – which allude to the concept behind the work.

Elsewhere in the world of Dean Blunt, he’ll be doing a “reading” of his forthcoming Rough Trade album project Black Metal at Bristol’s Off The Page festival in September.

Catch up with Blunt’s Skin Fade mixtape from the start of the year and read Chal Ravens’ interview with the elliptical soloist.
