Presented by The Future Tense in association with The Old Vic Tunnels, The Anatomy of Strangers is the first major solo show by emerging British artist, Joseph Loughborough, as well as being the first ever solo art exhibition at the fantastically atmospheric and adaptable Old Vic Tunnels complex, housed underneath Waterloo station and managed by the Old Vic Theatre.

As part of the exhibition, and to continue its curatorial mandate of engaging the public beyond a traditional gallery experience, The Future Tense arranged a live drawing event where members of the public could watch the artist create the final drawing from this intensely personal body of work in which the artist confronts the absurdity of the human condition.

Working exclusively in charcoal and graphite, and at a much bolder scale, Loughborough has eschewed the vivid colour palettes seen in recent works in order to focus on the impulsive and expressive execution of line and form that has become his trademark.

The Anatomy of Strangers remains on public view until 4pm Sunday June 24 at The Old Vic Tunnels, Leake Street, London SE1 7NN.
