New iconography, new media - preview

Rowena Loverance went to an exhibition of artists ranging from Stanley Spencer to the Chapman brothers

Note to any Friends who find themselves languishing on the waiting list for YMG: how about switching your allegiance to Greenbelt? The Christian arts festival is now held over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Cheltenham Race Course, and describes itself as ‘an infectious global conspiracy, working for God’s peace, healing and friendship in previously unimagined ways’

  • One attraction this year will be an art exhibition entitled Visionaries: working in the margins, which is just coming to the end of its pre-Greenbelt showing at Wallspace, All Hallows on the Wall, London
  • It includes the work of eighteen artists, living and dead, who work within the prophetic tradition of painting, which can be traced back on the one hand to dreamers such as William Blake and Samuel Palmer, and on the other to radical critics like Goya or Hogarth
