Today, Shimmy Shimmy and Al Fingers announced their new project for 2012, Art In The Dancehall, an exhibition co-curated in association with Puma, BASS Festival and Jamaica50:

The exhibition, to be in both Birmingham and London this summer, will feature work from foundation Jamaican artists Limonious, Jamaal Pete, celebrated poster designer Sassa, and UK go-to Greensleeves artist, Tony McDermott.

Alongside this, we present five young artists from around the world keeping the tradition alive: Ellen G (Israel), Robin Clare (Jamaica), GABE (Germany), Daniel David Freeman (UK) and Peter Edwards (UK).

It will feature a never before exhibited photograph of Limonious, alongside exclusive and specially commissioned pieces.

See the exhibition in Birmingham from 27th June to 13th July at The Drum (144 Potters Lane, B6 4UU) or in London from 27th July to 12th August at Puma Yard (Boiler House, 150-152 Brick Lane, E1 6RU).
