Makeshift is co-presenting End Of The Road an exhibition that opens on Thursday 28th January from 6pm at Cross Street Studios; it is the last exhibition to be hosted at the gallery space on Cross Street, near Auckland’s K’rd. To celebrate Cross Street Studios’ rough and ready approach to the arts, the exhibition will be a ‘cash and carry’ send off for the space. This means that it is first in first served, once you buy it you can take it home, so get in early if you want to see all the wonderful work up.

The exhibition is made up of a diverse group of artists with art ranging from pop art, illustration, minimalistic painting through to collage and typography. Many of the artists involved have work with Cross Street in the past, and include current and previous members of the collective. I'm happy to say that I'll be curating the show with Cross Street's director Tessa Stubbing. We have got a great group of artists and some exciting stuff planned. Make sure you come along to opening night.

Artists include:
Loved Letters

Genista Jurgens
Mikel Krumins
Amy Blinkhorne
Damian Golfinopoulous
Kim Shen
Aimee Carruthers
EDMO!
Nick Boyd

A new report into

A new report into experiments which transplant human cells into animals for medical purposes said scientists may not be far from giving apes the ability to think and talk like humans.Concerns about the cheap uggs creation of talking apes should be taken seriously along with "what one might call the 'Frankenstein fear' that the uggs medical research which creates 'humanised' animals is going to generate monsters", it was claimed.A regulatory body is needed to closely monitor any experiments that risk creating animals with ugg boots human-like consciousness, spawning hybrid human-animal embryos, or giving animals any appearance or behavioural traits that too closely resemble humans, the report said.Scientists would, for example, be prevented from replacing a large number of an ape's brain with ugg short bootshuman cells – as has already been done in simpler animals like mice – until much more is known about the potential results.Under the new guidelines the power to regulate tests on animals containing human material would be transferred to a body with wider responsibility for animal testing within the ugg tall boots Home Office. While there is no risk from experiments currently being carried out in Britain, it is possible that without careful scrutiny ethical boundaries could be crossed within the next few years, the experts said.Professor Thomas Baldwin, a member of the Academy of Medical Sciences working group that produced the report, said the possibility of humanised apes should be taken seriously.He said: "The fear is that if you start putting very large numbers of human brain cells into the ugg classic boots brains of primates suddenly you might transform the primate into something that has some of the capacities that we regard as distinctively human.. speech, or other ways of being able to manipulate or relate to us.
