Swiss Cottage Gallery

Camden has historically been at the forefront of change and welcomed people from around the world, creating an urban environment with an impressive cultural and linguistic variety. 146 languages and dialects are spoken in Camden schools today. The borough also has a large amount of ecologically valuable green spaces and is thus home to a variety of animals and plants who coexist with humans in often surprising ways.

This exhibition celebrates the cultural and linguistic diversity of the urban environment and people’s connection to nature within it. Camden’s rich cultural history is highlighted through rarely shown artworks from Camden’s art archive. These artworks deal with the notion of community, the importance of plants and animals to the urban fabric and a sense of home. Pieces by artists Jane Corsellis, Tracey Emin, Mary Fedden, Alexis Hunter, Bharti Parmar, and Francis Quesnel are displayed alongside recent portraits of Regents Park estate residents by Liz Hingley. This exhibition also features three thematic writing stations, prepared by Mara-Daria Cojocaru, inviting visitors to reflect on the exhibition in writing and to contribute to Camden’s literary legacy. It has been supported by Camden Council’s Regeneration team through the Camden Community Investment Programme.
