Imogen Eveson is a writer, designer and a promising new curating talent. She studied Fashion Communication with Promotion at Central Saint Martins, where she produced Fauve, an illustrated journal of fashion and art that went on to be stocked in fashion specialists RD Franks. Based on Fauve, she was commissioned to design the exhibition booklet and visuals for TESTIMONIES and to produce a retrospective book on The Wapping Project, to be published later this year. For the past two years she has also curated a fashion-based area at Latitude Festival, collaborating with up-and-coming set designer, Samara Tompsett. Imogen’s talent for invention and corralling ideas together has brought Samara’s beautifully crafted sets to life with talks, workshops and live shoots. She is poised to return to Latitude this year with The Painted House, an ever-evolving fashion exhibition set against the backdrop of Marie Antoinette’s crumbling boudoir and featuring imaginative collaborations with designers, illustrators, photographers and more.
On 27th June she will be taking us through her career so far with an engaging and entertaining visual history: from her roots growing up in Glastonbury (and how dancing in a field informs her work today!) to creating her own fashion magazine, Fizz, aged ten. From studying in Central Saint Martin’s iconic Charing Cross Road building before it was decommissioned, to the series of serendipitous moments that led to a whopping Wapping commission. She will talk about the joys and pitfalls of going to work in a Faraway Forest for one weekend a year and about her forthcoming project The Painted House, her most ambitious to date. Imogen will also offer an insight into her creative process; a mixture of intuition, dedication and self-confessed control-freakishness, and reveal the patchwork of perennial inspirations that filters through all she does: from Super8, Sarah Moon and Deborah Turbeville to Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch and the Ballets Russes; Portishead and Radiohead, Chris Cunningham and analogue cameras; natural light and tramlines.

Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
