Billy Childish: Unknowable but Certain at the ICA
Last week to see, exhibition ends 2 May 2010
This is the first major solo show of artist, musician and writer Billy Childish. He is somewhat of a cult figure, who has gained an international following and this exhibition encompasses his extraordinary career and persona. If you make the visit, be sure to spend time watching the documentaries that are played in the room upstairs, they give a great context to his recent paintings that are also on display. It's a good chance to not only to read his poetry but to see the collection of books he has personally published and designed himself.
