Movie-inspired charity exhibition creates A-list art

Not for rental

Not For Rental is an art exhibition with a twist - but what's the twist?

We're big fans of movies here at Creative Bloq - whether it's some of the best 3D movies (opens in new tab), sci-fi movies (opens in new tab) or old favourites, we can't get enough. So, when movies combine with design and illustration, we can hardly contain ourselves.

Not For Rental (opens in new tab) isn't what you’re expecting. Curated and directed by London-based designers Timba Smits (opens in new tab) and Gordon 'Flash' Shaw (opens in new tab), it comes packed full of heart, surprises and - like any great movie - a secret twist. At its core, it's an art exhibition, but one "you can only fully experience once you step through the door". Intriguing.

Artists already confirmed for the exhibition include London design outfit I Love Dust (opens in new tab), Crispin Finn (opens in new tab), illustrators Stevie Gee (opens in new tab) and Hattie Stewart (opens in new tab), typographers Daren Newman (opens in new tab) & Gemma O’Brien (opens in new tab), and street artist Mr. Penfold (opens in new tab). Not For Rental opens on July 4 for one week with ALL proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support (opens in new tab) and Art Against Knives (opens in new tab).
