Week 5 – 22nd Feb 2012

I’ve just spent hours compiling a blog entry and it’s disappeared – a warning to everyone to make sure you back up your work while working. Sigh!

Anyway – just a reminder that as so many of you can’t make the study trip on Wednesday 22nd that you can make an independent study trip or come along to a blog workshop in EB2.44 with me.

Here’s are some suggestions for exhibitions that are on now and soon and might help with your biographies or your core topics.

Tate Modern

Poetry and Dream section on level3 has lots of Modernist (particulalry Surrealist) artworks that could help you with your Modernist/Postmodernist post. If you’re there then you should explore everything for inspiration for your biographies.

Tate Britain

The Thin Black Line is an interesting sounding exhibition showing work from Black and Asian women from the eighties. This might be useful in the context of issues of identity, gender and race.

British Museum

For those of you interested in Manga there’s an exhibition of drawings by Hoshino Yukinoba open until 9th April.

Printmakers might want to see Landscape, heroes and folktales: German Romantic Prints and Drawings

Orange Dot Gallery in Bloomsbury has an exhibition called Women of Wonder: Girlcore celebrating their first publication of a new magazine.

Coming up at INIVA in March is an interesting looking exhibition by Roee Rosen called Vile: Evil Veil

For those of you interested in street art Time Out has good listings of  the best galleries and spots to see it.

Barbican

Not actually opening until May (but you should still make plans to go) is an exhibition about Bauhaus.

Happy visiting!
