Albert Louden: Streets and Rooms

Serpentine South Gallery 13 Apr — 12 May 1985 Free

It was Victor Musgrave who ‘discovered’ Louden as an outsider artist and originally suggested the Serpentine Gallery exhibit his work.

For this exhibition, Louden (b.1943) worked on either plywood or paper in watercolour, or pastel in his bedroom or in the back-garden of his mother’s house in Leyton, London.

The featured works projected a series of human dramas and confrontations, both indoors and out on the street.
