You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Be Arty

The ‘Treatment Rooms’ is a privately owned house in West London whose exterior walls have been transformed by a collective of artists, who operate from it under the same name.  In this post, I explore a remarkable example of public art and the message it transmits about the commodification of art.

The Treatment Rooms, a collective of artists who operate from a terraced house in Chiswick, are embarked on a project to cover the entire outside walls of a three-storey terraced house in mosaic art.
