The Unit London has moved up a step from Chiswick to a vastly larger space in Covent Garden's Seven Dials area and are opening this Thursday with a group show entitled Seven Deadly Sins. The themed exhibition features work from many of today’s most exciting contemporary artists including Mr Jago, Fabian Ciraolo, Ryan Hewett, Kristian Von Hornsleth, Mason Storm, George Morton-Clark, Carne Griffiths, Jake Wood-Evans, Rowan Newton, Carrie Reichardt, Snik, Ben Slow, Joram Roukes, Schoony, Pam Glew and loads more…

Some Artspeak from the press release:
"Inspired by the cultural heritage of its new Earlham Street home, The Unit London will call upon its roster of international talent to produce a radical exhibition of work depicting the “7 Deadly Sins” which explore man’s deepest, darkest vices – shedding light on his fallibility to the Deadly temptations, whilst at the same time uncovering the inherent capacity for good within us all. “7 Deadly Sins” explores humanity its prelapsarian state, the biblical phenomenon of Original Sin thrust into a fiercely contemporary context and examined in light of our modern day behaviours. Coinciding with the period of Lent, when our vices are challenged and our good behaviour put to the test, the show will provoke, excite and inspire the viewer to analyse their own limits and possibilities."
