17 July - 26 August 2020
Everard Read London presents its annual SUMMER exhibition - new paintings and sculpture by 20 artists, primarily from South Africa and the diaspora, but also from England, France and Italy.
The exhibition includes work by established artists at the peak of their powers, as well as younger artists beginning to make their mark.
Most works have been made during the period of lockdown imposed in many countries around the world in response to the pandemic. While the rhythm of life has changed for many of us, days of isolation are the preserve of artists for most of the time. Even so, many artists have reflected on the silent skies, empty streets and stillness around them, amplified by the consoling swell of birdsong.
