The London Group is the UK’s longest running and most prestigious artists’ collective. For over one hundred years there have been yearly exhibitions and you are warmly welcomed to this year’s show; The London Group Members’ Annual Exhibition will be held once again at the wonderful Cello Factory this Autumn.
“The London Group’s mission statement is to advance public awareness of contemporary art and the Group is seriously committed to offering artists the opportunity for showing, nurturing and supporting the development of the art of the future.” (Susan Haire – President).
In recognition of today’s increasingly diversified art scene, the exhibition will feature works in a large range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, digital, mixed media, installation, and video.
“A vital strand of artistic diversity and free-thinking in an art-world increasingly dominated by market forces and curatorial conformity.”
Nicholas Usherwood, Features Editor, Galleries Magazine.
The London Group was set up in 1913 by thirty two artists including Robert Bevan, Henri Gaudier Brzeska, Jacob Epstein, Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Lucien Pissarro and Walter Sickert, with the aim of creating a powerful artist-run group to act as a counter-balance to institutions such as the Royal Academy. The founding group created a unique structure for an organisation, that has gone on to successfully nurture the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists.
