Jamie Reid at Rise Gallery

Short Sharp Shock | A Selection of Works from the Personal Archival Collection of Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid – of Sex Pistols fame – at the Rise Gallery in Croydon. Featuring work going back to the early 70s, it was very nearly a retrospective. Interesting to see his work relating to the regeneration of Croydon in the 70s as Croydon is undergoing another regeneration right now. The Rise Gallery itself is in a shop in St George’s Walk – nobody seems to know what is happening to the Walk and they seem to be renting shops out cheaply because of the uncertainty. Of course, it’s filling up with interesting and quirky places. Will there a place for them after the regeneration? I hope so.
