Linda Kitson: iPad Drawings
18 May - 1 September 2018
The City Centre in partnership with the City of London Corporation is hosting an exclusive new series of works by artist Linda Kitson.
Kitson, who is best known for her work as an official war artist during the Falklands conflict, has created a vivid collection of iPad drawings capturing the Square Mile’s dynamic skyline, with up to 50 works set to be displayed in full technicolour throughout The City Centre gallery.
The City Centre will be the City’s ‘hub’ during the London Festival of Architecture with this year’s theme being ‘identity’. The show of new work by Linda Kitson will explore the development of key sites across the eastern city cluster and will include locations such as Bishopsgate, Leadenhall, Liverpool Street, Lime Street, St Mary Axe and Broadgate.
This exhibition has been made possible thanks to the support of the City Property Advisory Team at the City of London Corporation.
The City Model
10:00 - 17:00
The City model, produced by Pipers, is a unique way to study this history through the City's built environment. In addition to the historic street plan of the City and a number of heritage assets this 1:500 scale model of the city features all buildings that currently have planning permission which gives you a sneak peak at the City's future skyline.
Model talks are available for groups of 8 or more and can be booked by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling +44 (0)207 6008 362.
*Please note that on certain Fridays due to private events and school bookings access to The City Model may be limited. Please contact a member of staff before your visit to avoid disappointment.
