Developing Landscape is a project bringing together a group of over 40 enthusiasts, amateurs and artists, interested in exploring and painting the changing landscapes of South West London.
The exhibition shows work produced over a 6 week period, where every Sunday the group responded to a different development site in the London Borough of Wandsworth. Through partnershis with various stakeholders, including multinational developers, Wandsworth is at the forefront of urban development in London, setting out a new capital vision to reshape the local landscape, creating new public and private spaces that, “reflect the vision and aspirations of the local community”.
