The display of new work to a broad public is a continuing commitment of the SSI.
Centenary Exhibition 2021: Words Made Beautiful
The “Words Made Beautiful” exhibition, to mark the centenary of the SSI, was due to open at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London in Spring 2021. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, this will not be possible, but we hope to be able to reschedule the exhibition, both at the Mall Galleries and the other venues where the exhibition was due to be shown.
