A brief second entry today to plug this excellently-named 5 day pop-up exhibition at the Parlour Gallery, Queen’s Crescent. Its mission? To “gather information through drawings, found objects and mapping, and explore ideas surrounding place and community.”

But wait, come back! It’s quirkier than that. The Institute’s resident artists – Nic Harper, Jocelyn Allen, Milka Panayotova and Rodrigue Dakouri – would like plenty of local participation, so if you reside in the hood, swing by to add scribbles, thoughts and memories on the works-in-progress. For afficionados, there’s an epic quiz on NW5 tonight, starting 7pm, whilst more hedonistic readers might prefer the Closing Party on Saturday evening (18). Either way, it’s all being archived.

Finally, if you’re fan of the Museum Of Everything don’t miss the wall of colour-coded objects – from keyrings to shoes – found over 4 years by local artist Leslie Wilson-Rutherford, walking her daughter to school.

But if you see something you recognize, tough. It’s art now innit.

181-7 Queen’s Crescent, until Dec 18. See here for details of opening times.

    Hi, and thanks for including the IOKT in your blog, and particularly mentioning me and my contribution! Brilliant! Cheers, Leslie

    (just as a small correction, it was over 5 years and it was walking my son to school. You may delete this part!)
