Although not a native Londoner LS Lowry had a close affinity with the city - and was drawn to the hustle and bustle of the crowds of the capital moving en-masse. He later recalled how ‘People think crowds are all the same. But they’re not, you know. Everyone’s different.’

Lowry is just one of the many Modern British and Contemporary artists included in our forthcoming exhibition On Foot, curated by .anderson at

The exhibition will unfold like a walk through London, embracing the stark contrasts and unlikely juxtapositions that even a short journey through the city offers up.

Incredibly excited for and Offer Waterman to announce On Foot, an exhibition curated by .anderson celebrating London.

Opening this autumn, On Foot will be curated by Jonathan Anderson at Offer Waterman and bring contemporary artists into dialogue with iconic works of modern British art.

Anderson’s own fashion designs for JW Anderson and LOEWE will inhabit the spaces as viewers and bystanders to the works. Pieces from recent seasons have been chosen for the way in which they transform the body and give it sculptural potential. The exhibition will unfold like a walk- through London, embracing the stark contrasts and unlikely juxtapositions that even a short journey through the city offers up.

From the salubrious streets of Mayfair where the gallery is located, to the provocatively storied alleys of Soho where the JW Anderson store has its home, the exhibition’s galleries will each act like a pause at one of the social spaces or experiences the journey has to offer. Celebrating all aspects of the city from the pub to the park, the gallery’s corridors and staircases will become pavements and traffic-clogged streets with skaters lingering, while ceramics and sculptures will represent crowded scenes. JW Anderson’s pigeons will take over a storeroom and a garden square bench will allow visitors to take in the surprising abundance of flora and fauna the city has to offer. Rounding off the journey by ducking into a pub, a diverse cast of characters will each tell a story of the city they live in.

For the exhibition Anthea Hamilton has collaborated with JW Anderson to produce a limited- edition version of the iconic pigeon clutch which will be presented at Offer Waterman and the JW Anderson Soho store.

On Foot will be open to the public from 18 September to 28 October 2023

Open Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 – 18:00 (Saturdays until 17:00)

💦Happy Birthday David Hockney 💦

Gregory in the Pool, 1978 is the last of four unique works which depict Hockney’s assistant and then companion, Gregory Evans, leaning out of a swimming pool located just outside of New York in the late seventies. The pool was owned by Hockney’s friend and the influential print-maker, Ken Tyler of Tyler Graphics Ltd, whom the artist would collaborate with on Paper Pools; a series of thirty works - of which this is the fourth- created between August and October, 1978. Each work was created using hand- coloured and hand- pressed paper pulp a completely new medium for the artist, the challenges of which enabled him to approach one of his most iconic subjects with renewed impetus. As Hockney recalled,

‘I love new mediums and this was something I had never seen or used before. I think mediums can turn you on, they can excite you: they always let you do something in a different way, even if you take the same subject, if you draw it in a different way, or if you are forced to simplify it, to make it bold because it is too finicky.’

08/02/2023

‘I had been making paintings involving a geometric division of the canvas using various grid systems, based usually on found objects such as postcards showing more than one image. I was struck by the images in Life magazine, and their emotional content. I remembered the moment when I first heard of the tragic event of November 1963, and I had been an admirer of JFK since the 1960 election. I had also made my first visit to the USA in summer 1964, when the nation was in the election campaign for President, with Barry Goldwater challenging Lyndon Johnson, and, in New York, Bobby Kennedy running for the Senate. I had seen him and helped to hand out buttons for him at Grand Central Station one day. I had also spent time at Andy Warhol's Factory, and helped to make paintings of Jackie Kennedy, some based on photographs of her at her husband's funeral.

But it was not the content so much as the pattern of the repeated frames spread over page after page, with the white grid and curved corners of each frame, and the predominant color of the grassy knoll, that gave me the idea of making a painting called Zapruder, which seemed the only possible title.’
