Gallery Seven is delighted to announce that it will be teaming up with anti-poverty youth charity Ctrl.Alt.Shift. to put on the show Dear Diary from May 11. The event supports the work Ctrl.Alt.Shift. are doing with young people in Kenya.
The show will consist of some of the best examples of journal writing you're ever likely to come across. It's a wide spectrum ranging from the intellectual musings of Anais Nin to the angst of Kurt Cobain to a rare collection of the diaries of ordinary people. For those that can't face the idea of reading, the show will also have an audio-visual flavour complete with comfortable seating to heighten the pleasure.
We will also be selling limited edition diaries with a cover design by Alexa Chung and content comprised of the epiphanies of manys a diary keeper.
It'll be a real departure for us but we're excited by the prospect. We hope you are too.
The show will open to the public from May 11 and run until 23rd May.
