Housing and Homelessness : (March-April 1999)

This major exhibition brought together some of the most thoughtful and original art produced by contemporary artists in response to this powerful theme. The show occupied all three floors of the Candid Gallery in Islington and included a group of Tom Hunter's award winning photographs Persons Unknown; two large scale installations by Tony Rickaby and Peter Kennard dealt one with structures, the other with people. David Hepher's austere but magnificent paintings of tower blocks dominated the ground floor gallery while Moyra Peralta's moving photographs recorded the life of those without shelter. The sculptors May Ayres and Alec Worster, each touched by the pathos of the human condition produced timeless figures huddled on pavements or the lonely old in their council flat
