This angry looking chap in a nightie is posing for Daniel Freaker’s photograph for Free Beer, an exhibition of work by more than 30 young London artists. Painting, sculpture and photography will share space with sound pieces, installations and performances. The title comes from a desire to be no-nonsense and honest, to step away from ‘the unrealistic notion of the artist as a creative genius whose ideas are so abstracted from everyday life they can only be expressed in pseudo-intellectual truisms’. In other words, no artists in garrets allowed. Catch Free Beer at The Shooting Gallery, Stephen House, Darnley Road, London E9 from July 4 to 28.
