Schools of London

Kirsty Carter

For Frieze Masters 2019, Waddington Custot presented an exhibition of painting and sculpture, which explored the influence of London’s art schools from the mid-1960s onwards. This small publication was produced to accompany and document the exhibition. Its title typography is a contemporary interpretation of inscriptional serif type, in reference to the stone carved signage visible on historic buildings in which many London art schools were first based.
