Our current Icons exhibition – a collaboration with Cambridge’s premiere modern and contemporary Art Hound Gallery - runs until 31 January and celebrates some of the many pop culture legends associated with Riverside Studios, with portraits of Amy Winehouse, The Sex Pistols, and David Bowie, among others.
What makes an icon? From Hollywood greats, to Rock and Roll superstars and theatrical legends, icons have been an inspiration for a wave of artists exploring pop culture and beyond. This selection of artwork by some of the most exciting Contemporary Artists on the scene, including David Studwell, Lauren Baker, Mark Illuminati and Terry Pastor, explores the symbolism and iconography of celebrity and the very notion of what makes a ‘star’.
The Art Hound Gallery Director Tom Arnold and Creative Director Natasha Dawn said: “The Art Hound team is delighted to be collaborating with Riverside Studios, where so many of our personal icons have performed. Where we have snuck in to TV audiences, watched theatre and even had the odd audition back in the day. With our Icons exhibition we will be showing works by cutting edge artists which celebrate all these wonderful connections.”
