Their aim is to exhibit the most ambitious and extraordinary work by the very best young and emerging artists of this era in this unique architectural space. Riflemaker has presented debuts by Jamie Shovlin, Francesca Lowe, Jaime Gili and Chosil Kil as well as themed exhibitions on William S. Burroughs, the Indica gallery - 'Riflemaker becomes Indica' - the Liliane Lijn/NASA collaboration 'Stardust', John Maeda's virtual exploration, 'Maeda/Myspace', Alasdair Gray and Francesca Lowe's 'Terminus' and an investigation of 'Voodoo: Hoochie-Coochie and the Creative Spirit'. 79, Beak Street, Soho, London W1.

I love this gallery in such an interesting old building, with lots of character.... I went to see the Voodoo show with a friend back in Feb and will always remember it, especially the cellar with the bubbling wax......:) thanks for sharing these photos
