#LondonTrending at the Guildhall Art Gallery

A brand new exhibition documents the rise of London's artists through a stunning series of limited-edition prints.

4 May 2017 – 28 August 2017

Guildhall Art Gallery’s new exhibition #LondonTrending documents the rise of London’s artists through a display of limited-edition prints on loan from British Land. Experience some of the 20th century’s most innovative art from Damien Hirst, Richard Hamilton and Peter Blake, among others.

From the mid-20th century through to the early 2000s, London was at the heart of a cultural explosion. Collaborations between groups of artists based in the capital heralded era-defining work and propelled London to the centre of the art world. From the radical Independent Group, challenging the dominant modernist culture, to the Young British Artists employing shock tactics and adopting new processes – their work shaped the creative landscape.

#LondonTrending is on display at the Guildhall Art Gallery until 28 August. Free entry. See their website for more details.
