Historic London building Fulham Town Hall will open its doors after lockdown for the first time in a decade as it plays host to ‘art in the age of now’, a group exhibition that brings together contemporary art, live music, talks and performance art.
A collective of street artists will be taking over the building’s basement including Angry dan, ben eine, lucie Flynn, force, lea bou habib, paul insect, luap, jack laver, dotmasters, gary Mansfield, nerone, rez, spore, unvrsl nmd, matt webb, and catman.
Downstairs in the maze of former holding cells, these artists will be covering the walls with their iconic signature styles, transforming the historic building.
The venue itself is an embodiment of local history and community; it has played host to countless marriages and christenings, and performances from legendary London bands such as The Clash and The Slits. Now this ornate grade II listed landmark will be brought to life through an engaging multidisciplinary exhibition.
The exhibition is divided across the main rooms, project spaces, individual artist rooms, the basement vaults and the town hall courtroom. This will be a platform to support the capital’s cultural community after a series of challenging lockdowns and a celebration of local artists and scenes.
The exhibition is open to the public from the 20th May.
