Adam Dant | The Museum of the Thames Estuary

September 14, 2016

Hales London is delighted to announce the presentation of Adam Dant's work in the pop-up Museum of the Thames Estuary in Southend. The pop-up will be in an artist-designed modified ship container situated in the museum's striking planned site, within the cliffs at Southend Seafront, and is part of the new biennial, 'Estuary'. His drawing will be on show from the 17th September to 2nd October 2016. 

 

Ahead of the planned new permanent Museum of the Thames Estuary, due for completion around 2020, this pop-up will present a brand new collection of shipwreck finds, recently accessioned into Southend Museum from the Thames Estuary bed itself, exhibited alongside a  new drawing by Adam Dant that reveals the shipwreck secrets still hidden beneath the waters. This new drawing connects to Adam Dant's existing body of large sepia ink drawings and maps that depict our modern society transformed by an obsessive examination of common history.
