The Showroom presents ’Amp Envelope’, the first solo exhibition in London by artist Adam Shield.


Shield's new body of work opens up drawing and collage as a means of exploring interior worlds; with imagery encompassing references distilled from post-apocalyptic science fiction writing, dystopian dream projectors, seventeenth century alchemy and everyday encounters with political, societal and economic structures.


For the third iteration of ’The Showroom Mural Commission Shield’s recurring motif of a hand-painted grid will wrap around the facade of The Showroom as the framework for a new collaborative mural. Meanwhile, inside Shield will create a spatial collage for audiences to inhabit; an all-encompassing environment further exploring the expansive potential of drawing and print.

Building upon a period of collaborative research in the local neighbourhood, Church Street Library & histories of radical community print groups, an in-situ printmaking workshop will create the context for a programme of drawing, print and poster-making sessions running on weekends throughout the exhibition.

Poster Workshops:

Free creative drawing and print-making workshops

No previous experience required

Initial dates: Saturday 23 & 30 July; 6 & 13 August
