Venue: 198 Gallery
198 Gallery is proud to cement its position as a key contributor to both the wider community and the London art scene. Since its creation, in 1988, after the Brixton riots, 198 Gallery has been at the leading edge of creative education in Lambeth.
Designed to provide young people aged 13-19 with access to new media technology, Urban Vision is 198 Gallery’s unique new media arts programme addressing young peoples creative needs.
The Urban Vision - Metropolis exhibition gives talented budding graphic designers, photographers and illustrators an opportunity to exhibit their innovative work and celebrates the integration of the urban lifestyle to the UK culture.
This year, the Urban Vision – Metropolis exhibition includes artworks created in partnership with the Youth Advocate Programme (ISSP) Digital Expressions (YAP) and the Lambeth Youth Offending Team. The exhibition is presenting pieces that have been produced through the new ‘Pix and Mix’ programme in Graphics, Photography, and Illustration. It will also include video projects such as the Africa Remix film ‘Brixton Bytes’, in collaboration with Digital Extensions-Hayward Galley.
This show is the young people’s response to the urban sprawl expressed through photography and Graphic Art. They are the new lifeblood of the British Art scene and this will be their debut.
