Join artist Mark John Smith for a walk-through of his solo exhibition Man Many Men, on view at the Bureau through March 18, and a book signing of the accompanying publication Blue Blue Balls.

*Bring a pen – this work needs defacing.

Snuggle down with Mark as we invite you to immerse yourself in the creation of new confessional and constructed narratives. Mark’s practice calls for your voice to be added to an ever evolving, collaborative tapestry as archive. There’s always a need for a ‘duvet day’.

Think Felix. Think Tracey. Think Robert.
They miss you.
