The Showroom

Including some of the pieces commissioned by The Showroom for Amp Envelope, the first solo exhibition in London by artist Adam Shield at The Showroom. The exhibition ran from 19 July to 17 September 2022.

Through his work Adam Shield opens up drawing and collage as a means of exploring interior worlds. His imagery encompasses references distilled from post-apocalyptic science fiction writing, dystopian dream projectors, seventeenth century alchemy and everyday encounters with political, societal and economic structures. In these works, the borders between the inner and outer worlds are blurred, drawing resonances between individual perspectives and wider structural conditions.  

The third iteration of The Showroom Mural Commission forms an integral part of Amp Envelope and occupies The Showroom facade until July 2023. Shield’s recurring motif of a hand-printed grid wraps around The Showroom building as the framework for a new collaborative mural displaying imagery produced in a series of workshops including community groups and individuals from The Showroom neighbourhood and beyond.

About the Hosts

The Showroom

The Showroom

The Showroom was established in 1983 and in 2013 celebrated thirty years of supporting artists to stage their first solo shows in London and its role as a pivotal force in the development of contemporary art practice.

The programme focuses on collaborative and process-driven approaches to production be that art work, exhibitions, events, discussions, publications, knowledge and relationships. Through major commissions and smaller projects they work with artists and other practitioners who have not previously had significant exposure in London, often introducing international artists to London, and working in partnership with other individuals and organisations within our networks, both at home and abroad.
