Camden Art Collection

The London Borough of Camden Art Collection consists of 1,000 items that include works on paper, paintings and sculptures. The main focus of the collection is works dating from the late 1950s to the late 1980s. Camden Council approached us to help curate an exhibition about the collection at the Swiss Cottage Library and to set up a new website to showcase the entire collection.

For the show we wanted to highlight the personal anecdotes of artist Jonathan Murphy. Having looked after the collection for the last eight years, Murphy’s knowledge is vast — and his unique insight allows us to get a personal interpretation as he recalls the stories behind the artworks. These stories appear throughout the exhibition. We also worked with James & James to make three films that brought the anecdotes to life, these where projected in the space.

Audiences where also invited to make up their own stories as well via two writing workshops held by Visual Verse.
