Oxo Tower Wharf
Over the past four years, residents and businesses in Bankside have been working together to create a new vision for the Bankside neighbourhood. Convened by the Bankside Neighbourhood Forum, this will lead to a referendum in early 2018.
Supporting this process is an exhibition of recent work by artist Adrian Chappell and historical images curated by photographer George Nicholson. Part of London Festival of Architecture, the free exhibition showcases over 60 vivid digital drawings and photographs under the theme Bankside's Past in the Present.
The images are derived from Bankside's changing industrial landscape, dating from the late 18th century to the present day. Innovations in power generation and technologies played an important role in Bankside's economic and social development until the 1980s. Stories about key individuals, events and organisations that have played an important role in shaping today's Bankside are also featured.
Bankside's Past in the Present is open at Oxo Tower Wharf from 31 May-4 June between 11am-6pm.
