Camden Town Group in Context

Camden High Street in 1905

This week sees the official launch of the long-running Tate Research Project Camden Town Group in Context, a pioneering online catalogue dedicated to the Camden Town Group, who held three exhibitions in London between 1911-1912. The site includes a wealth of material, including images, short films, scholarly essays, transcripts of original reviews, correspondence and recordings of contemporary music hall songs. It explores key themes such as gender and sexuality, social class and social type, modernity and metropolis, and performance and popular fiction. The launch coincides with the re-design of the Tate website.

Camden Town in Context represents an incredible online resource for anyone studying this period of British art – and an enjoyable distraction for anyone else. Highly recommended.
