On Thursday night, Lazarides‘ Greek Street and Rathbone Place galleries were both packed for the private view of The Faile/Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade at Greek Street and a Faile retrospective at Rathbone Place. The arcade is something you really just have to experience in person, but basically, Faile and Bast have transformed the gallery into a 1980’s style video game arcade, but an arcade in a Faile/Bast world. All the games (officially, “interactive artworks”) are based on art by Bast and/or Faile. It’s crazy.
And if you’re a fan of Faile, their retrospective at Rathbone Place is a great place to see all of your favorite pieces from as far back as 1999:
