This month's featured exhibition is 'Bad For You' at the Shizaru gallery in Mayfair.

The exhibition features 68 contemporary artists primarily from America. 'Bad For You' highlights the unwavering relationship between art and vice, displaying the human relationship with what is 'bad'. The exhibition avoids judgement, allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusion.

The exhibition explores various issues from drugs and cigarettes to guns and violence.

Curator Beth Rudin DeWoody recognizes the mounting excitement for the exhibition and its viewers and states,"I am fascinated by artists' interpretation of 'things that are “Bad for you”. Over the years as a collector, I have always been drawn to work that depicts or represents what I try to avoid in life. In a way, my bad side lives vicariously through the art.”

This exhibition is a bit of everything, from photography to paintings and sculptures. It is ideal if you have interests outside of photography, too. The eclectic mix of mediums really emphasises the link that all art, no matter what the medium, has a link to what is seen as 'Bad For You'.

'Bad For You' runs from the 10 October to the 23 November 2012 at the Shizaru gallery in Mayfair, London. For more information, visit the Shizaru Gallery website.
