Gail Ritchie Contemporary Art
Two trips to London within ten days - just too much to see and do! The first trip was to see the Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11 exhibition at the IWM before it finished and to do some specific research on war memorials. It was great to see the newly installed sculpture of Millicent Fawcett by Gillian Wearing at Parliament Square. The IWM exhibition was a mixed bag but I did appreciate the intimacy of Grayson Perry's tapestry which addressed the fate of modern veterans sympathetically. I spent a lot of time around Whitehall and Hyde Park Corner with Jagger's immense Royal Artillery memorial and the Australian War memorial which couldn't have been more different. I am still thinking about the memorial to Bomber Command. The second trip was to see Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at Victoria Park - but images of that will have to wait for another post. I am still thinking about that too!
This is where you will find news about exhibitions, projects, events, other artists, travels, experimental work and sometimes things that I just enjoyed seeing! I hope you enjoy them too!
