31 Women: curator led tour
June 20, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Please join us for a morning exploring contemporary art in East and North London. We will meet at Breese Little in Bethnal Green, where we will enjoy coffee and croissants and a private tour of their upcoming show, 31 Women. The exhibition channels the pioneering spirit of the exhibition at Peggy Guggenheim’s New York gallery in 1943. Featuring artists within Guggenheim’s circle, 31 Women will combine work by women artists from the 1940s to the present day, including work by Eileen Ager, Rana Begum, Cornelia Parker, Bridget Riley, Gillian Wearing and Rachael Whiteread.
We will finish the morning at Victoria Miro, a few steps away, with a curator led tour around Alice Neel, Uptown. The exhibition focuses on paintings made by the artist during the five decades in which she lived and worked in Manhattan and contains her characteristically intimate and direct portraits. It is a personal and fascinating depiction of the many neighbourhoods and personalities that touched the artist.
