Ghosts examines the social effects of urban regeneration in cities around the UK, and particularly in London. This is obviously a timely issue as more and more historic buildings and areas are razed to the ground to make way for new developments. The artists in this exhibition react to urban regeneration in different ways, some use humour whilst others take a more poignant approach to their work.

“The subject of regeneration is particularly prescient; some of London’s treasured cultural markers are under threat from an apparently exponential building project. The recent ‘destruction’ of the Paolozzi mosaics at Tottenham Court Road and closure of Soho’s cultural centres are examples that have raised debate around the threat of homogenisation, which London has always resisted. These artists react to the phenomenon of the city with particular insight and erudition; it is only fitting that this conversation is carried out at the Fine Art Society, a long-time resident at London’s cultural heart.”
