A multi-sensory experiment by The London Group. BEING THERE combines and fuses diverse physical objects and digital visual/audio contributions from 42 London Group members into one overarching immersive work of art. A kaleidoscopic experience that not only intertwines the physical with the virtual, but also transcends the boundaries of the individual’s artistic practice.
The theme ‘Being There’ has emerged from the forced separation of the last year, and the ability of The London Group members to only exhibit and meet in the virtual space. This exhibition thus celebrates a physical as well as virtual coming together of the Group.
