Ceramic artist, Ben Hughes, explores the historic relationship between Doulton Pottery, formerly on Black Prince Road, and the Lambeth Art School (now City & Guilds of London Art School).
For Art Night London, Brocket channels the celebratory premise of the ‘Loving Cup’ – created by Doulton, depicting celebrities of the time, and updated by Hughes with contemporary concerns. Transforming their basement gallery into an immersive den serving ‘Arrack Punch’ – famously served at the nearby Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens – guests are invited to participate in the ‘Ceremony of the Loving Cup’ dating back to Saxon times and enjoy hourly artist-led tours.
