I am London - City Hall/More London Riverside

This exhibition has now ended.

Exhibition details

An exhibition celebrating London's unique and complex identity.

3 to 28 April 2017
Outside at More London Riverside at London Bridge City, London SE1 2DB
Inside at City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA, Ramp and Café (lower ground floor) Monday to Thursday 8am to 6pm, Friday 8am to 5.30pm

Previously shown at Central Saint Martins in 2016, a selection of portraits were presented as part of our Keep It London campaign which asks Londoners to notice, celebrate and speak up for the heritage of their city.

'I am London' is a celebration of the city's unique and complex identity; as much about its scientific endeavour, cutting edge art, performance and design, politics and campaigning as its pubs, pearly kings and parks. It's a snapshot of London in microcosm, told through its people and places.
