What's on now and forthcoming exhibitions on display in the Refectory
Simon Shaw - The Workings of my Inner Brain
6 January - 9 February
Having spent most of his life in South London, Crystal Palace is his home nowdays. A qualified photographer he was a frustrated artist until digital cameras and Photoshop came of age. This was when his inner me was released. This exhibition is a mix of Abstracts, Flowers and Landscapes plus some Animals worked in his very own way.
London Symphony - Photographic Exhibition
10 February - 2 March
London Symphony is an artistic snapshot of London as it stands today, and a celebration of its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion.
The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017, and was winner of four categories in the Silent London Poll of 2017: Best Silent Film DVD/Blu-ray release, Best Silent Film Theatrical Release, Best Modern Silent Film of 2017 and Silent Hero of 2017 for director and editor Alex Barrett.
During the making of his film, director Alex Barrett took a wide range of photographs which, like the film itself, offer a poetic journey through the capital. This exhibition features a curated selection of these images, along with two photographs of Southwark Cathedral taken especially for the occasion.
St. Saviour's and St. Olaves School Photographic Exhibition
3 March - 30 March
This exhibition will showcase photography from different year groups from St. Saviours and St Olaves School.
Bankside's Past in the Present
31 March - 4 May
Local residents and businesses are working together to develop a new vision for London's Bankside
Supporting this collaboration is an exhibition of prints and photographs by Adrian Chappell and George Nicholson. These draw on images and storylines from Bankside's Industrial heritage.
Today most have been replaced by cultural and leaisure-driven innovations. Reflecting on this, the exhibition shows how change in this dynamic neighbourhood has aconstant enduring presence.
