Griffin Gallery: Architecture as Metaphor
One of my favorite exhibitions this year is happening right now and will only last until the 21st of April. If you’re a fan of drawing, architecture and thought-provoking art, then you’ll want to see this one before it comes to an end.
A beautifully created show with artwork that nods to architecture as a historical reference to the cultural and political change in society with imagery in photography, film, painting, drawing and sculpture. This show forces the viewer to recognize the hidden wonders of everyday modern architecture.
The exhibition also features beloved artist Tony Carter, highly respected by his contemporaries, including many of the exhibiting artists including Michael Craig-Martin, Phyllida Barlow and Richard Deacon.
After a successful career as an artist he turned his passion to teaching, and spent 16 years as Principle of City & Guilds of London Art School dedicating his time to improving arts education, a place that I so thankfully had the opportunity to study whilst Tony was still at the helm.
