The River Thames flows through London and out to the sea and has been a source of fascination to painters and artists through out the centuries. In this small but interesting show at London's Museum of London Docklands, we see a contemporary view.

The first thing of note is: garbage....and lots of it. Gayle Chong Kwan has photographed it, in all its grubby glory. Coffee cups, Q-tips, straws, plastic bags, lost shoes, you name it, she's shot it. Yuck.
