Exhibitions I saw in the summer 2015
Vestry House Museum
On Saturday, I attended a talk at Vestry House called House history. The speaker was so passionate about the subject and compared the process of finding a houses history as detective work. I loved it !
For the past couple of months Westminster Art Library has become my haven for applying for jobs. However on Saturday I attended their open day where I got the chance to see some of their limited addition and rare books. It was great seeing the library in a different light and having interesting conversations with people.
Over the weekend I took a random walk and stumbled across the Rock against Racism exhibition at Rivington Place in Hackney. Syd Shelton is exhibiting his documentary photography from the 70s and 80s when Thatcher reigned and protests and anarchy fused the masses. This led to the "Love music, Hate Racism" movement which challenged the popular fascist ideals through music and showcased Reggae and punk bands on the same stage, thus leding to two tone Ska sound. I loved the exhibition and I'm looking forward to attending some of the talks about it. The exhibition continues until the 5th December 2015.
