If you pop along to the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, why not drop in on an intriguing group exhibition at Annex East located on the doorstep of the Games in Hutchins Close (until 23 August). Five young London-based contemporary galleries contribute to the culture smorgasbord by showing one piece of work by one artist (hence the catchy title "One One One"). "The Olympic Games comprises nations from all corners of the globe collectively gathering under one roof to celebrate and test the capabilities of the human body. In this sense, 'One One One' can be seen as a site upon which to test the values of the inclusive, universal spirit associated with an event like the London Summer Games," explains the press statement. Participants are: Hannah Barry Gallery (James Balmforth); Cole (Oliver Michaels); Millington/Marriott (Neil Rumming); Andor (Julian King) and Limoncello (Yonatan Vinitsky).
