Cold Front | McIntosh Gallery

McIntosh Gallery (MG)
Can you feel the chill? From the ashes of the Second World War arose a period of international political tension suffused with fears of nuclear conflict. This winter, McIntosh Gallery revisits the Cold War era with artwork by London-based artists who emerged upon the national and international scenes during that uneasy time. The exhibition reveals both the diversity of London Regionalism, a movement of artists rooted in their community and local surroundings, and the myriad of ways these artists navigated the anxieties of the Cold War.
