London Is Love

11 NOV – 7 JAN 2020

The city and its diverse and pioneering communities are revealed and celebrated in a dynamic photographic project by artist Liz Johnson Artur.

By framing its own identity through its audience, Southbank Centre honours its location at the heart of London in striking new commission London Is Love.

Taking in the Elephant and Castle shopping centre and the 59 bus route, this project shines a light on the south London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.

Johnson Artur picks out the ordinary, vibrant and subtle nuances of south London life: family, friendship, love and vulnerability.  

The images are displayed on a large scale across the windows of Royal Festival Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, including rolling projections across the building facade.
