‘Infinite London’ will be a fine art exhibition for visual artists, who are based in London and create their art in London. It is planned to be an art event of the year!
“London goes beyond any boundary or convention. It contains every wish or word ever spoken, every action or gesture ever made, every harsh or noble statement ever expressed. It is illimitable. It is infinite London.” Peter Ackroyd
‘Infinite London’ is inspired by London as a living, breathing, laughing, screaming entity in its own right, as perfectly captured by Peter Ackroyd in his book ‘London: The Biography’. We intend to match the animated nature of London with refined but vibrant entries from all of our selected artists. This does by no means only include pieces that depict our surroundings in a literal way. The works have to be made in London
The key mission of ‘Infinite London’ is to reveal talented, but still unknown artists who live and work in London, as well as to promote London as the world’s artistic hub. All artworks must have been made in London by artists based in this city.
LONDON AS A HUMAN BODY:
Brief of ‘Infinite London’ for the Artists:
London is like a human body and I am one of its organs. We can’t live without each other, we can’t live separately. Humans are like little blood cells traveling through the artificial veins and arteries that are the streets and underground tunnels keeping the city alive and growing. I want to express my feelings and emotions towards this relationship through artwork. I act as the pulse of creativity that keeps the culture system flowing. I need to emphasise my importance in our coexistence.
As artists living in London, we are all in one way or another influenced by the city. It shapes our behaviour, our way of thinking, our everyday existence. It thus has an impact on the works of art we produce, whether the imagery and content are directly related to it or not. We are a part of London, and London is intrinsically connected to ourselves and our creative output.
There will be a selection of the best artworks depicting the emotions and inner feelings inspired by being part of London. LoVArts will encourage artists to ‘bare all’ in their artistic entries; we want refined but vibrant entries to be representative of the artists’ particular London experience, and how they wish to ‘give back’ creatively to the city’s atmosphere and life.
