A London to Find with the London Drawing Group

UCL Art Museum
7th May 2024
16:30  - 20:00

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES WE REGRET THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. Details of a replacement date will be shared on these What's On pages in due course.

Join Lucy McGeown of the London Drawing Group in a workshop looking at the drawings of former Slade School of Art student, Geoffrey Fletcher.

Fletcher was a ‘flaneur’, a wanderer and visual observer of modern life and captured a London long gone in his book The London Nobody Knows (published in 1962).

We will be looking at some of his work in the UCL Art Museum before heading out into the surrounding area to draw from architecture and locations near the UCL campus that resonate with Fletcher's ideas and interesting aspects of London. He brought attention to buildings and shops that have been destroyed or built over. It is a rich theme and an interesting lens to gaze at the London of 2024.

We will be using these works and our own drawings to think through ideas of memory and space, and how we can find those traces of what had been before; how we relate to the present as well as imagining social spaces of the future.

Materials will be provided.
This workshop is part of UCL Museums & Cultural Programmes 2023-24 event series Architecting Futures from Past Traces, exploring the relationships between peoples and cultures, habitats and environments, and imaginary worlds using UCL Collections as source inspiration.
