Celebrate the first year of BEEF at an inaugural Member’s show as they close the doors to Portland Square.

Two floors of the cavernous Georgian building temporarily occupied by BEEF will be the platform for the inaugural Members’ Show as BEEF celebrates its first year and prepares to close the door to 25 Portland Square before moving to a new home. The exhibition will bring together work from some thirty members of the BEEF collective presented throughout the building.  

‘A site for collective entanglements. One thing seeps into another.There will be no labels, no map. Identity will be collective’
