#MYNAMEIS is a public exhibition investigating the importance of names, the perception they give and the burden they may carry. Consisting of five works, each located on a billboard in various locations throughout London, the pieces encompass varying ideas on the assumptions and stereotypes that are associated with a name.
Artists Nastasia Alberti, Duval Timothy, Kevin Morosky, Annie Mackin and Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing (who for her piece shot another Gillian Wearing) have each produced a work which explores an aspect of what a name means, how we interact with them and how we're affected by these titles everyday.
These pieces will be unveiled to the public on Friday June 20th with a private view bus tour. Brought to you by Annin Arts - whose last exhibition was 'Bus Stops' by Juergen Teller (which featured Teller's pieces atop bus shelters along The Strand) – it is set to be another interesting way for Londoners to interact with original art as they go about their daily life.
