Mecklenburgh Square Garden Project

The ongoing garden project at Mecklenburgh Square is conceived as providing the opportunity for selected artists to realise work in a wide range of media in the open air, exploring the possibilities that this context enables, calls for and provokes.

There have been three curated exhibitions, Group Portrait with Garden, Changeable Conditions and En Plein Air, and one invited (with Giorgio Sadotti and Liz Wright) exhibition, Outside of Outside.

With thanks to the Mecklenburgh Square Garden Committee and Goodenough College. CJ
