The London Group Annual Exhibition will this year be hosted by Bankside Gallery.
In addition to exhibiting members’ work in the main gallery, all members have the opportunity of showing a second piece in a mini exhibition of A5-size pieces, which will be displayed along the walls of a wide corridor space. And, if visitors to the exhibition want to take an artwork away with them immediately rather than waiting until the end of the show, there will also be a display rack containing a selection of superb unframed paintings, drawings and prints by London Group artists to browse through and buy.
A considerable strength of The London Group is the diversity of art practices encompassed – painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, digital work etc. Every medium is given equal weight and importance and with this in mind, a focal point at Bankside will be a dedicated booth showing members’ films and videos on a large screen, along with seating for viewers.
London Group archivist David Redfern will curate a display of posters and catalogues celebrating the Group’s extraordinary 109-year history.
Past members Janet Nathan and Arthur Wilson, who both passed away in 2020, will be honoured in textual and visual dedications organised by Tommy Seaward. There will also be a memorial to Dame Paula Rego RA LG (1935-2022), who died earlier this year. A Dame Paula Rego artwork is on loan courtesy of the Cristea Roberts Gallery.
The London Group was set up in 1913 by 32 artists, including Walter Sickert, Jacob Epstein, Wyndham Lewis, David Bomberg and Henri Gaudier Brzeska. Since then, the Group has continued to flourish, with several celebrated and award-winning artists as current members. From the outset, artists have been democratically and rigorously selected on the merit of their work.
