London exhibition features Loughborough academic and Reader in Fine Art, John Atkin

John Atkin’s work is to be featured at an exhibition which has been organised by Marguerite Horner, winner of the 2018 British Women’s Artists Award.

The exhibition, entitled Disposition, will be held at Bermondsey Project Space, which is a district of London associated with several high-profile galleries such as White Cube. It features fifteen artists, including John.

John is a Reader in Fine Art and is based within the School of the Arts, English and Drama

Two wall-based artworks from his Vanishing Point series will be featured in the exhibition, which will run until 31 March.

John’s recent solo exhibition at Felix & Spear Gallery received critical acclaim in London and in the East Midlands, with BBC Radio Leicester interviewing John about his career as well as his recent University Award from Loughborough University.

Some of John’s most recent research activity includes his participation in the Dialogue with the Emperor Qin’s Warriors, which featured artists from every country in the EU as well as three Chinese sculptors who each created contemporary artworks reflecting the UNESCO Terracotta Warriors. This exhibition travelled to London and was hosted by Hear East in conjunction with Loughborough University London..
