Surrey Quays welcomes ‘Art of Isolation’ lockdown exhibition
A new exhibition, showcasing more than 230 pieces of art produced during lockdown, is now on display at Surrey Quays.
Curated by South London artist Rod Kitson, the ‘Art of Isolation’ platforms the work of 140 people from around the country, including works from well-known artists Wilfrid Wood, Marc Craig and Nick Richards.
It features everything from portraits to DIY projects, all created in the lockdown months.
Entry is free of charge and extra measures have been implemented to ensure visitors can maintain social distancing.
This is all about celebrating the different ways we have responded to these strange times. I wanted to show the creative energy of what people have produced in isolation, bringing the artwork together even though we have to stay apart. With the work tightly packed on the walls, my aim is for this to be a symbolic antidote to social distancingRod Kitson
