Class of 2020 is an exhibition to document a surreal year through the artwork we have produced.

This inclusive group show was due to run from December 10 to 23 in south London, but due to the sudden third national lockdown cutting the show short, it reopened from April 12-17 2021.

It is a showcase of artwork made in 2020. There were no other rules for entry – it just had to be something created during the calendar year.

And the response to the open call was fantastic! More than 280 works were eventually submitted, from over 150 artists. It’s an inclusive show, with no work refused.

The show is not about work being judged, it is to show what different people have been up to during the year, and to enjoy other people’s unique responses to this unusual time.

All mediums, from drawing to painting, to sculpture and printmaking, and any other weird and wonderful creative practices artists had developed during lockdown were submitted.

Class of 2020 is about saying: “We were there, we experienced it together – and these were our creative responses”.
