all kinds of naughty

March 27th 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of Ian Dury’s untimely death from colorectal cancer. In commemoration the Thames Group of Artists has produced a mixed-media exhibition entitled ALL KINDS OF NAUGHTY. 

 

Named after an unrecorded Dury lyric, the exhibition included a collection of paintings, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and live performance, all inspired by the songs and lyrics of the great man himself.

 

In addition to the work by the twenty Thames Group artists the 'All Kinds of Naughty' exhibition also included work by some notable guest artists, Sophy Dury, Rod Melvin, Humphrey Ocean RA, Sir Peter Blake, Kosmo Vinyl and Han Lee De Boer.
