We like it a lot takes its title from a video by the Polish collective Azorro, in which the artists visit and comment on exhibitions in Warsaw. In each instance their experience of the art on show is indiscriminately summed up with this one inadequate but emphatic phrase. Under the banner of Azorro’s subversive slogan, the curators have selected works they like a lot by London-based and international artists, and brought them together for a weeklong exhibition with daily performances and screenings.

Friday 17 August, 6 - 9 pm: Preview with performance by Charlie Tweed
Saturday 18 August, 7 - 9 pm: Live music by Johnny Parry (Johnny Parry Trio), screenings by Azorro and Richard DeDomenici
