An Evening With OOF

Join OOF Gallery's curators and a host of football-obsessed artists as they explore the aesthetics of the world's favourite game and celebrate the launch of issue nine of OOF magazine.

What to expect

Grab your club colours and a pint. OOF’s Eddy Frankel and Justin Hammond conjure up a cozy pub corner to host conversations with a team of exciting artists. You'll hear about:

• A History of OOF with Eddy Frankel and Justin Hammond

• Hannah Kumari performing an excerpt from EN-GER-LAND, followed by an audience Q+A

• Juno Calypso on how she found beauty in brutality with her football focussed photography series

• Corbin Shaw will be creating a piece of art inspired by the culture of football fans using stickers as calling cards and a way of marking their territory.

OOF Gallery is a cutting-edge art space dedicated to football and the culture that surrounds it. Like all the very best ideas, it was born in a pub. Eddy Frankel had a plan for combining art and football in a biannual magazine. Justin Hammond wanted to put on football exhibitions that weren't really about football. Together with Jennie Hammond, they made it happen.

OOF magazine is now onto its ninth issue, while OOF Gallery has three exhibition spaces, two artist studios and its own shop, all in a beautiful Georgian townhouse in the grounds of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Corbin Shaw

Originally from Sheffield, Corbin explores ideas of masculinity through the medium of textiles, paying homage to the people and places that have shaped his northern identity – the pub, boxing gyms and football pitches. He's best known for his unique take on the St George's cross, where he uses satirical slogans and messages of love and support to hijack stereotypes associated with the flag.

Eddy Frankel

Eddy is a London-based art critic. He is the Art & Culture Editor for Time Out and has written about art for The Guardian, ArtReview, The Art Newspaper and Vanity Fair. He's also the co-founder and editor of OOF, and is a huge fan of sparkling water.

Hannah Kumari

Hannah is a performer, writer and producer who creates original theatre and film. Her self-written short film, Devi – देवी, which she also stars in, was recently broadcast on Sky Arts. Hannah has toured her solo show, ENG-ER-LAND, to over 20 venues, supported by Arts Council England and The Football Supporters’ Association. ENG-ER-LAND is co-produced with WoLab and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair.

Juno Calypso

London based artist Juno works with photography, film and installation. Her wry staged self-portraits build a soft pink universe of hyper-femininity, solitude, desire and despair, with an ultra-critical edge. She has become one of the most recognisable photographers working today, forging an aesthetic that has seen her move seamlessly from immersive, intimate gallery exhibitions to leading major campaigns for fashion brands like Burberry.

Justin Hammond

Justin is the co-founder and curator of OOF Gallery. He is also a director of J HAMMOND PROJECTS, a London exhibition space dedicated to supporting ambitious ideas. Previous solo shows at JHP include Betty Tompkins, George Rouy and Shadi Al-Atallah. Justin thinks he can still do a job in the middle of the park.
