"Cab Gallery"
1999-09-21 until 0000-00-00
Spanish Absinthe, Absenta.com
London, , UK United Kingdom

Cab Gallery is an arts project that uses a working London Cab as an exhibition space. Devised and curated by art dealer Paul E Stolper and cab driver Jason Brown, Cab Gallery will be an ongoing project where the exterior and interior of the cab will become a showcase for invited London artists.


Participants include Peter Liversidge (1999 John Moores nominee), Bob and Roberta Smith, Steve Bunn (winner of The Battersea Outdoor Sculpture Prize 1999; winner of Madame Tussauds Prize, RCA Best Graduate 1999), Abigail Cohen, Jemima Stehli, Colin Lowe and Roddy Thomson, Sarah Staton and Ray Richardson.


Abigail Cohen has reworked Robert de Niro's famous speech from 'Taxi Driver', Bob and Roberta Smith's 'TAXY' (sic) sign and Peter Liversidge's 'ABSENTA.com' painting will be displayed on the outside of the cab. Passengers can flick through Liversidge's 'Book of Proposals' during their ride or get into a prisoner's uniform that will be lying on the back seat. Jemima Stehli's beautiful self-portraits will appear in place of advertising on the tip-up seats. Documentation will be made available on exhibits as and when they appear.

Paul and Jason will continue to work and collaborate with young contemporary artists, developing new exhibits for the Cab Gallery as the project evolves.

How Cab Gallery Works

Cab Gallery will work on two levels: it will be an anonymous body of artworks that travels day and night within the cab to be spotted or not by the unsuspecting passenger. It will also be used by artists to create unique pieces for their own projects and / or private views. Cab Gallery will appear at the following
