Gothic was the first of a number of special events in 2009 and 2010 to mark the Centenary of the Contemporary Art Society. Around 30 artists and galleries generously donated works celebrating the ‘gothic sensibility in contemporary art’, for a unique installation in the vast, atmospheric vaults next to London Bridge.
Following a private view of the exhibition and a gothic banquet, the works were sold by auction to help the Contemporary Art Society buy works for public collections in the UK.
