Notes:

Art at LSE aims to provide up and coming artists with a central London space for innovative, dynamic exhibitions while enhancing the School's own environment for students, staff, alumni and friends. The emphasis is on helping to develop talent, with a link to social sciences and the wider work of the School as a meeting place of social and cultural diversity.

* This will be the third major exhibition hosted at the School. The first was a solo exhibition by Julie Held, hosted by LSE's Gender Institute. The second, in May 1999, was the first London premier of the work of acclaimed young Spanish artist Belén Cavestany. Her show Andalucia, sponsored by the Spanish Embassy, Iberia Airlines and Tio Pepe, attracted international press and sold 22 paintings.
