Really loved this exhibition (and the Museum of Everything - Nek Chand which is showing upstairs at the gallery). I had not heard about any of the artists showing work in the Alternative Guide to the Universe before so all the work on show was completely new to me. Most of the work was really inspiring, a lot of it obsessional and the majority of the artists were men! I personally liked George Widener's fascinating calendars, Richard Greaves' intriguing buildings, Bodys Isek Kingelez's amazing models of fantasy cities and Marcel Storr's drawings of futuristic cities. Many of the artists have extremely poignant life stories. A thought provoking, and in some cases amusing and unusual, collection of work. Well worth a visit!
