LondonistBridge: Thames Crossings Celebrated At Museum Of London Docklands
Museum of London Docklands is all set to stage the largest art exhibition in its history, and Londonist is proud to act as media partner.
The Bridge exhibition brings together photographs, panoramas, art works, data visualisations and film, all depicting the bridges of the Thames. Collectively, the works look at how London's bridges allow people to move around and experience the city from new angles. As curator Francis Marshall says: "Most of the time we are in a maze of streets and the city reveals itself in fragments. On a bridge, however, the full iconic panorama is laid out."
The exhibition coincides with the 120th anniversary of Tower Bridge, and also runs during a period when new Thames crossings, such as Thomas Heatherwick's Garden Bridge and a new bridge for east London, are under debate.
We've selected six of our favourite images from the exhibition below, to show the variation on display.
Bridge runs at Museum of London Docklands from 27 June to 2 November 2014. Entrance is free. We'll have more details about the exhibition's events programme, and more on the artworks soon.
