A pop-up exhibition titled Pain at the dentist will be held at a disused dental surgery in Hackney, London, later this month. The Alvarado Gallery exhibition will explore ‘our relationship with the endurance of pain’. The exhibition, which will be held from 20 April to 2 May 2012, will showcase some of the best up and coming artists and illustrators. The Alvarado Gallery is a new artistic outlet that ‘bridges the gap between artists and illustrators and the domestic art collector’. It is set to have a series of themed temporary shows across London, before residing in a yet to be disclosed, fixed residence. Pain at the dentist is inspired by Ovid’s quote ‘be patient and be strong; for someday this pain will be useful to you’. Crown Spirit 1982, 2010, mixed paint on found metal by David Shillinglaw NEWS
