Piccadilly, Dieter Roth. 

Featuring the work of 30 artists including Phyllida Barlow, Tony Carter, Rachel Whiteread and Sir Michael Craig-Martin, the exhibition will present a wide range of work in a variety of media to examine the influence of architectural imagery in contemporary art.

This will also be an opportunity to see never-seen-before designs by Turner Prize winner Richard Deacon and Serbian artist Mrjdan Bajic of a snake-like bridge to be built in Kalemegdan Park in Belgrade.

Architecture is a permanent record of cultural, social and political change in society and this display reveals how artists use it to reflect our environment and the changing landscape of the world that we live in.

The display will also feature work by the late Tony Carter, whose influence as an artist saw him beloved by his contemporaries. Other exhibiting artists include: Maurizio Anzeri, Rob Voerman and Wolfgang Schlegel.

Architecture as Metaphor will be on display at the Griffin Gallery from the 9th March until the 21st April. For more information visit:
