Romanticism in the Urban Environment A multi-disciplinary exhibition of works by selected Fellows of the Royal Society of Arts. 

The theme of this exhibition is the urban landscape. The city can be seen as a living museum of past and present voices and ambitions… a romantic view of this landscape will be manifest in the artists’ emotional response to the history, the present, the future, the people and the vistas of the city.

This two-month long exhibition has been jointly curated by Charlotte Wand (for the Portico) and Lotte Karlsen (FRSA) and will feature work by: Adam Aaronson, Frank Creber,  PJ Crook,  Fiona Heron, Lotte Karlsen, Quintin Lake, Agnieszka Mlicka, Martin Stynes, Alan Yates
