Samuel Johnson. "The Life of Samuel Johnson Vol. 3', James Boswell, 1851

The exhibition brings together a variety of artists who have responded to the life and history of London. They follow in a tradition that reaches back to Hogarth's etchings of Gin Lane and Monet's impressionist visions of the Thames to Rachel Whiteread's ghostly House in east London and Gilvert and George's lurid evocations of Brick Lane. London has long been a conspicuously successful multi-cultural metropolis where people from different cultures have combiens to create a dynamic and positive place to live, work and creat art.

The exhibition includes around 80 or more works of art includin paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, film, sound and installation and is curated by Philippa Beale.
