Art in the Age of Now is the exhibition taking place at the Fulham Town Hall. Packed with art and boasting works from artists of different genres. One of the stand out installations from the show has been LUAP’s iconic Pink Bear. Installed in a former holding cell in the town hall basement, the room has been painted pink and the bear is central within it.
For visitors to the Art in the Age of Now exhibition it’s become a huge favourite. It’s also proved popular with photographers. In particular the photographer and filmmaker Archie Brooksbank who has been documenting the event and using the bear as a means of navigating the space. Known for his work with brands such as Aston Martin and Jo Malone he’s been trying to capture the essence of what is a remarkable exhibition.
The Pink Bear is the creation of artist Paul Robinson. Also known as LUAP we’ve featured his work a number of times on Inspiring City. The artist is known for his use of the bear in his work which in many ways acts as both a muse and an alter ego. A result of cognitive behavioural therapy the bear is the result of a treasured childhood memory which now has taken on a new life.
Such is the popularity of Art in the Age of Now, the exhibition has been extended for a further two weeks. Once closed the space will begin the transformation to a new phase of its life. That of a boutique hotel at the heart of Fulham.
