No Place Like Home
17th September – 23rd October 2021
Block 336 will present No Place Like Home, an exhibition of new paintings by the London-based artist, Dale Lewis, that responds to his experience of Covid-19. Depicting a host of characters from London’s lesser and well-known gay and LGBTQ+ scenes, from the Royal Vauxhall Tavern to Wanstead Flats, these new paintings reflect on how social distancing and enforced segregation impacts on the shared experiences of intimacy, pleasure, solidarity and loss and the impact this has had on already marginalised, underrepresented and undercared-for groups.
On 27th May 2021, Block 336 hosted a virtual ‘in conversation’ event between artist Karen McLean and art critic, independent curator, art historian, writer and presenter Aindrea Emelife, in conjunction with McLean’s exhibition BLUE POWER | Ar’n’t I a Woman!

Block 336 presents a series of works on paper by artist Karen McLean, a coda to her exhibition BLUE POWER | Ar’n’t I a Woman!.
The Blue Devils captured in the small pastels on gold paper represent the devil character that emerges in the early morning at the start of the Trinidad carnival referred to as J’Ouvert. They capture the spirit and movement of these characters, as well as embracing the texture and layers of these iconic figures.
