Current Exhibition

Examining Art
by students from Bow School, Langdon Park School, Morpeth School and Swanlea School
12 July – 3 September 2018

Saima Akthar, Langdon Park School, Misrepresentation (2018)-300Tower Hamlets Artist Teachers Network and four of Half Moon’s local partnership secondary schools, Bow School, Langdon Park School, Morpeth School and Swanlea School, come together to present an exciting display of artwork drawn from the very best of their 2018 GCSE students.

Each piece, created in response to the specifications for their examination courses, is striking in its maturity, breadth of style, and sensitivity in the exploration of personal themes.

The range of media is extensive from photography, mixed media and digital collage to pastel, pen and paint. The work of the young artists, aged 14 to 16, provides an engaging visual appraisal of contemporary London.

Examining Art aims to celebrate and encourage student creativity and career development beyond GCSE art. The exhibition is part of Half Moon’s on-going commitment to showcase the work of local art students from across our home borough of Tower Hamlets and to inspire more young people to get creative.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Tower Hamlets Artist Teachers Network.



Examining Art runs from 12 July – 3 September 2018 at Gallery @ Half Moon during the theatre opening hours: Monday – Friday 10am-6pm.

There will be an official gallery opening event on Thursday 12 July, from 4pm to 6.30pm, where you can chat to the artists in a relaxed atmosphere.

Beneath the artwork, there are chalkboards for visitors of all ages to make their own responses to the art. For all our exhibitions, we provide a gallery trail for children. School and community groups can visit free of charge by pre-booking and can the exhibition to support Arts Award Discover and Explore. For details contact Beccy on 020 7709 8908 or via email.
