The second exhibition:
HRH Princess Margaret 20 Years 20 Artworks
9 – 20 FEBRUARY 2022
On a historically significant date, February 9th, the 20th anniversary of HRH Princess Margaret’s death, we will present 20 artworks celebrating the iconic photograph taken in 1985 by Ken Griffiths. Unpublished until the Princess’ death, on the 9th of February 2002, when it appeared on The Telegraph’s front cover, the image made a comeback in 2020, when a copy of the pillow was made for the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown.
An incredible array of 22 national and international artists, including Zi Ling RI, has been invited to reinterpret the photograph in line with their own vision and style, exposing a different narrative which they have carved from beneath the picture.
A book detailing the interpretation made by each artist and retracing the history of the image and its rebirth in the contemporary art world will be released on the opening night.
Visit us at 15 Bateman Street, in Soho, London. The exhibition will remain open to the public until the 20th of February 2022.
