On 15 November 1913 Jacob Epstein coined the name for The London Group, Britain’s longest running artists’ group. A hundred years later to the day, +100 The London Group Today opens in the capital, a unique exhibition that connects Britain’s leading contemporary artists to their historical counterparts.
16 Nov – 13 Dec 2013, The Cello Factory
Each work on display is a response by a current London Group member to an early work by a past member on show in a the partner historical exhibition: “Uproar!” the first 50 years of The London Group 1913-1963, at Ben Uri (See right).
There was a full programme of events organised by Gill Ingham to accompany the show at the Cello Factory including two well attended musical recitals of Harpsichord and Recorder music. There was also a children’s Drop in and Draw day, Artists talks and a Question Time Panel Discussion hosted by Matthew Kolakowski.
The show was reviewed by The Flaneur art blog.
