Just Stop Oil (JSO) protesters have changed course to present their own art exhibition, You may find yourself… takeover of an art gallery in Piccadilly Circus from June 1st for an expected duration of two weeks. The title of the exhibition is taken from a lyric of the song once in a lifetime from the 1980 album stay in the lightaddressing a sense of dysphoria and apathy around wealth and commercialism in the western world, with the refrain “the same as ever” reminding viewers how little has changed in over 40 years.

London-based Anna Holland will attend, one of the activists who took part in the viral incident which saw Van Gogh’s Sunflowers covered in soup.

The Koppel X Art Gallery at 48 Regent Street will also serve as JSO’s office and is the Koppel Project’s tenth location in London. The group exhibition includes works by Ron Arad, Gavin Turk, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Andrei Molodkin and Jamie Reid. Collaborative organizations include The Auction Collective, Fondation Vivienne and the FILET space, The Auction Collective and Fondation Vivienne.

Admission is free in tandem with a digital art auction “containing hundreds of pieces” over the remaining two weeks.
