Thirty paintings by David Mabb at the William Morris Gallery – The Arts & Crafts Movement meets Russian Constructivism. Mabb has superimposed pages from the Kelmscott Chaucer by William Morris with images by El Lissitzky from For The Voice, a book of revolutionary poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky, to create a double celebration of utopian art.

In the park behind the gallery we caught a fantastic set by The Skatalites at the Walthamstow Garden Party. It was a bit like listening to reggae music inside an Anish Kapoor sculpture. Bliss!
