The London Group WINTER 2020 Newsletter
 
Welcome to the latest edition of The London Group newsletter.
 
This year, 2020, like no other, has forced us all into strange modes and rhythms. A scrambling for new technologies, intersections and conferences. This year saw three online London Group exhibitions, several wired working committee meetings and a private view, artist talks and an AGM courtesy of Zoom. Members have been brought together in new combinations. Is this our shared future - faces peering from the void?
 
This edition is full of stories of collaborations both planned and unplanned, future looking and historical. The articles represent a meaty reflection on what is going on, what has been lost and what is possible. Included is our biggest ever collaborative article, with 30 members contributing - an emerging manifold on colour - perhaps a rainbow. Enjoy.
