british art show


The British Art Show 5 is one of the most prestigious art shows of the year, presenting the current state of art in Britain. The show is a five yearly National Touring Exhibition organised by the Hayward Gallery, London. Through fluid navigation and user-friendly interface, this website is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in contemporary art and its curation.

The British Art Show 5 website was built by studiofish as an accompaniment to the exhibition, to be displayed online and also on computers at the exhibition. There are over 50 artists, and hundreds of works. Biographical information is given on each artist, and a chronology of art and society since the first British Art Show in 1979.

In 2000 the show opened in Edinburgh and tours to Southampton, Cardiff and Birmingham.
