PANEL DISCUSSION: "Is Art Transformative?"

The Cello Factory, 33-34 Cornwall Rd, London SE1 8TJ


What is in front of us has as many interpretations as there are viewers. The inherent ambiguity is a challenge and opportunity to engage in a shifting dialogue for both artist and public. Revolution or renewal, is a transforming of the idea at the heart of all life.


The artists involved in this show at Waterloo's Cello Factory explored the proposition of looking beyond the physical appearance of the art through their own individual use of various media. The show, curated by artist Tom Scase, featured sculpture, film, painting, performance and installations.


The artists included Anita Bryan, Clive Burton, Tricia Gillman, Marenka Gabeler, Martin Heron, Gill Ingham, Claire Parish, Tom Scase and Tommy Seaward.

The London Group, one of the longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collectives in the world, has around 90 members and champions diversity of work and independent thinking. Celebrating its centenary in 2013 its illustrious history mirrored that of British art for much of the 20th century and today the Group is as strong as ever, with nine shows this year alone.


The London Group presented three exhibitions at the Waterloo Festival 2018 (see also Nothing Endures but Change and Altered States). Together they offered the perfect opportunity to showcase examples of the range of its members’ artistic practices. 


The Waterloo Festival is an annual summer festival of arts and inspiration, held in and around St John's Waterloo. It celebrates arts, music, ideas and new talent in a beautiful setting in the beating artistic heart of London.
