The ‘Return to London’ exhibition created by celebrated artist and cartographer, Adam Dant, on display at St Martin-in-the-Fields, is to be extended until September 12th. The commemorative exhibition includes a selection of bespoke prints, including one created exclusively for St Martin’s, aptly named, ‘The Novel Map of the Parish of St Martin in the Fields’.
The Church of www.stmartin-in-the-fields.org are excited to announce ‘The Return to London’ exhibition dates are being extended following a year of forced closures due to the ongoing pandemic. A true tribute to what has been a turbulent year, the ‘Return to London’ exhibition is Dant’s depiction of the vibrant tumult and turmoil of nearby Leicester Square, along with maps that that salute London’s Theatres, Lost Rivers and in ‘Viral London’ the capital’s vanquishing of plague and pestilence over the past 2,000 years.
The exhibition coincides with the church’s 300th anniversary, with visitors encourage to revive the tradition of ‘beating the bounds’ of the Parish of St Martin’s, walking the parish’s perimeter.
The novel map forms an exciting centre piece for the exhibition of the artist’s lively depictions of London public spaces.
The exhibition, which launched back in May, will now be open until Sunday 12th September. Opening days and times as follows: Mon-Wed 12noon – 6pm / Thu-Fri 12noon – 8pm / Sat 11am – 8pm / Sun 11am – 7pm.
Tickets are free of charge and bookings can be made via: https://lopf.artsvp.co/c77576.
Chris Denton, CEO at St Martin-in-the-Fields commented:
“We’re thrilled to be extending the ‘Return to London’ exhibition so our visitors can experience the truly magnificent artwork created by Adam Dant. After battling against the recent lockdowns, it is great to finally be open and allow visitors back into St Martin’s once again. The special artwork created by Dant is fantastic and we’re thrilled with the Novel Map artwork. It’s a lively piece of artwork – I know every time I look at the piece, I find something new on there!”
