Ways of Seeing

68 artworks, 33 artists, 28 locations

In partnership with the Government Art Collection, Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019 presented Ways of Seeing in the summer of 2019. Transforming the whole borough of Waltham Forest into an art gallery, Ways of Seeing displayed the work of 33 internationally-known artists from the Government Art Collection in 28 unusual and unexpected venues across Chingford, Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow from 24 April – 31 August. 

An impressive total of 68 artworks by 33 artists were selected from the Government Art Collection relating to ideas around production, landscape and nature connecting with the Borough’s rich history of creativity and its enviable mix of urban spaces, waterways and forest. Each work was displayed in a specially selected location that responds to the piece, offering new ways to think about it and the borough.
