Estuary – Last Chance

It seems a very long time since I was enjoying oysters and other seafood at the opening of Estuary in mid-May at the Museum of London in Docklands, and like all good things it has to come to an end – and that end is on 27 October 2013 – this Sunday.

So this weekend is your last chance to see the show as a whole, although my images are also mostly on line on various sites – including a few here in the post Not A Drop in Bermondsey, and others in my book ‘Thamesgate Panoramas‘ or on the Urban Landscape web site, as well as in the on-line Museum of London Collection.

But there are other artists in the show, and some of their work is rather harder to find anywhere, and there is also something about having different views together in the same space.

The show is the largest contemporary art show the museum has attempted so far  with work by Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen, Christiane Baumgartner, John Smith, Andrew Kötting, William Raban, Simon Robert, Michael Andrews, Gayle Chong Kwan, Jock McFadyen, Peter Marshall and Stephen Turner, and Time Out’s Critics’ choice described it as ‘Unexpected and thoughtful insights into this often overlooked but mesmerising environment.’ But it’s a little disappointing that I’ve not seen any serious critical review of the show. There is a short video made by the museum on putting on the show which is interesting, and also a video featuring the work of two of the artists.

Currently I’m beginning to think about another show next year at a central London venue where I will be showing work with artist Hilary Rosen. The central theme of the show is likely to be the River Thames, but I think most of the work will be different to that in ‘Estuary’.
