LSE Arts Public Exhibition

Dates: 1 December 2014 - 23 January 2015*
Time: 10am-8pm, Mon-Fri The exhibition closed at 3pm on 23 January
Venue: Atrium Gallery, Old Building

*The Atrium Gallery will be closed to the public during 15-19 December 2014 for Graduation. The school will be closed from 24 December 2014 - 5 January 2015.

This show presented a selection of work by the British artist Mark Neville. The artist’s socially engaged practice distinguishes him from the majority of contemporary artists and builds a natural bridge to the academic debates on the issues of inequality, class, race, and conflict. The exhibition is organised in cooperation with the Alan Cristea Gallery and curated by Helen Waters (Alan Cristea Gallery) and Gwendolyn Sasse (University of Oxford). The opportunity to show such a high-profile artist at LSE has arisen out of a previous cooperation between LSE and the Alan Cristea Gallery.

Artist Mark Neville held a lunchtime tour of the exhibition to discuss his work on Friday 16 January 2015 at 1.15pm. 

Alongside this exhibition there was a public discussion on 13 January 2015 entitled Picturing Race and Inequality: the potential for social change.

This exhibition is open to all, no ticket required. Visitors are welcome during weekdays (Monday - Friday) between 10am and 8pm (excluding bank holidays, when the school is closed, at Christmas 24 December 2014 - 5 January 2015). For further information email arts@lse.ac.uk or phone on 020 7107 5342. 

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts website.
