Responding to the Waterloo Festival’s theme Transforming Minds, this exhibition dedicated to moving image takes as its inspiration Ken Russell’s 1980’s science fiction film, Altered States. The 22 works, which will be on display in the historic crypt of St John’s Waterloo, explore altered states in a variety of contexts, from perceptual, psychological and philosophical to societal, technological and geographical.
A London Group & Friends exhibition
ABOUT THE LONDON GROUP
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.
