Our Visits in 2020
A return to atmospheric 2 Temple Place, this time for Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles. We were delighted by the varied exhibits, both antique and contemporary, and impressed by biographies of the visionary women, some of them skilled designers and needlewomen who created beautiful artefacts which are now in major collections. Seeking coffee afterwards in Somerset House set us in competition with the more numerous and in some cases rather younger patrons of the Connect exhibition on there, but experience and thirst prevailed and we colonised our corner.
Anselm Kiefer : Superstrings, Runes, The Norns, Gordian Knot at the White Cube, Bermondsey
A small group of members visited the White Cube Gallery to see Anselm Kiefer’s huge, beautiful but tragic post-apocalyptic masterpieces and to wonder at the breadth of his culture and vision.
Bridget Riley : Colour at the Hayward Gallery
Members of the Group admired Bridget Riley’s skill with line, shape and colour at the Hayward, from her early figurative paintings through to her use of softer colours in her most recent work.
