The RUPERT GOLDSWORTHY GALLERY is pleased to announce an important exhibition of new work by the famous London art group BANK entitled "PRESS RELEASE".
The exhibition runs from September 9th until October 16th 1999. There will be an opening for the artists on Thursday September 9th, from 6 to 8pm.
On a recent visit to New York BANK were surprised at the poor state of New York press releases. "It was strange," said one BANK member, "it was almost as if the people writing these things were stupid! We decided we should try and help!" This was the starting point for the current project.
