This year after a somewhat chaotic but fun selection process The London Group elected five new members to join the group. The five artists work in a wide range of artistic mediums from photography to constructions to metal sculpture. Three of them were prize winners at the recent Open exhibition. One of them has joined the group for the second time. We are looking forward to see what new ideas and skills they all bring to the group.
Combines is a small Group Exhibition curated by Mark Dickens inspired by the innovative combination artworks of Robert Rauschenberg and others in the 50s and 60s.
The show features work by Ece Clarke, Mark Dickens, Susan Haire, Annie Johns, Eric Moody, Charlotte C Mortensson, Janet Nathan, Michael Phillipson, David Redfern, Tom Scase, Tommy Seaward, Suzan Swale, and Anthony Whishaw RA in collaboration with film maker Alessandro Farrattini.
