The John Ruskin Prize 2015/16 exhibition, Recording Britain Now: Society, will open at The Electrician’s Gallery at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London’s Docklands, accompanied by an event programme exploring current debates around regeneration in the capital.

Now in its third year, this open exhibition invited emerging and established artists from across the UK to respond to the theme, Recording Britain Now: Society. The artworks selected (from over 700 entries) for The 3rd John Ruskin Prize see artists reflect upon and address a diverse range of topics including housing, CCTV, identity, technology and the political climate.

In the same way that Recording Britain sought to map familiar townscapes and countryside under threat from World War Two and later from urban development, its contemporary counterpart Recording Britain Now: Society, was an invitation to artists across the UK to observe and record our country’s society, which is in a constant state of transition.

Private View: 5th of May 2016. Please RSVP here.
