Tower Bridge Exhibition is delighted to announce the launch of Art at the Bridge #8, the eighth exhibition to be held in collaboration with leading local arts charity, Agenci (formerly Southwark Arts Forum). This successful partnership was established in 2011 as part of Tower Bridge’s on-going commitment to engage with, and acknowledge, the talents of the local creative community.
The collection will be on display in the atmospheric Engine Rooms, from where the mighty bridge lifts were once powered, offering the perfect chance to explore the exhibition theme at the heart of one of the London’s most famous symbols of industry. This year’s theme perfectly complements the new Engine Rooms interpretation, unveiled this spring, which explores the social history of the Bridge.
Art at the Bridge #8 draws inspiration from a city continuously in flux. The work of 13 artists will explore the theme of ‘Construction – Destruction – Reconstruction’ through a variety of media, including paintings, photography, drawing and sculpture.
