I actively collected contemporary pictures for the Museum of London’s collection and initiated a programme of exhibitions focused around contemporary artists. The most important projects were from left to right
David HEPHER – ‘Streets in the Sky’ – (1996). Hepher has dedicated his London work to the subject of housing – from the middle class suburban villas of early paintings to the inner city tower blocks which followed.
Robert SODEN the art of the Jubilee Line (1999)
Arturo DI STEFANO: his London Paintings were brought together in an exhibition entitled ‘Portrait of a city’ (2000)
ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCES schemes: Mao Wen Biao to accompany the exhibition Artists’ London (1993), Timo Lehtonen to accompany the exhibition curated by Nick Merriman ‘The Peopling of London’ (1994); Jonny Boatfield to accompany David Hepher’s exhibition ‘Streets in the Sky’ (1996)
