Jan 26 - Mar 18, 2018
Art for the Environment presents work from six artists whose practice explores the nature of human impact on our environment. Following the international residency programme Art for the Environment (AER) – set up by acclaimed artist Professor Lucy Orta at the University of the Arts London – the exhibition presents, for the first time, a selection of work created from past residencies, including film, sound and interactive installation. Established in 2015, the AER programme invites artists and designers to explore concerns that define the twenty-first century – including biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy and human rights – and through artistic practice, envision a world of tomorrow.

DOREEN FLETCHER : A RETROSPECTIVE. CURATED BY THE GENTLE AUTHOR
Jan 25 - Mar 24, 2019
Private view Thu Jan 24 6pm - 9pm
Bow Arts presents a retrospective of works by painter Doreen Fletcher, curated by The Gentle Author.
 
Doreen Fletcher’s atmospheric urban landscapes have only recently captured an audience, when the discovery of her paintings revealed a distinctive vision of the changing capital. For the first time, the Nunnery Gallery will bring the majority of her work back under one roof, in the home of their making – the East End. The works reveal the drastic changes of east London’s streets across just three decades, remembering the businesses long forgotten and the buildings that have since been knocked down. A superb colourist, she applies her rigorous technique to recording the drama of the city in compelling and authoritative images.
