In autumn 2012 I visited the White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey, London, with a friend of mine. We went to see an exhibition of the works of Theaster Gates. I had not heard of this artist before but I was quite impressed. Gates works with materials such as fire hoses, black tar and wood. He comes from Chicago and often uses the money he makes from his art to renovate poor areas in around the city that he was born in. I think its commendable that he uses his position in the art world as a productive force of good and I’d recommend anyone to visit his future shows.
