Olivia Laing’s investigative book on the state of urban loneliness beautifully captures what it is like to live in the modern world, a juxtaposition of feeling both connected and isolated.
Submit 3 images of your work in relation to the state of urban loneliness along with an artists statement for a chance to have your work shown in an exciting new exhibition. Please note artists may be asked for more than one print if successful.
I was excited to have been chosen to show three of my art works in this exhibition and it was great to go to the private view at the Bowery in Leeds. Read all about the artists here. The exhibitions ran from the 25th January to the 22nd March 2019. The opening evening was well attended and it was great to meet the other artists.
