Y10 are focusing on Typography for their current GCSE topic and this trip was to inspire them for the next stage of the project. Miss Stewart’s group went on Tuesday 6th Dec and Mr B-A’s group went on Thursday the 8th.
We went to the Phillip’s Auction House in Berkley Square to see the preview of the ‘New Now’ contemporary art sale https://www.phillips.com/auctions/auction/UK010816.
We also visited the Gagosian (the richest dealer in the world) gallery in Grovesnor Hill to see the famous Post-Pop text artist Ed Ruscha http://www.gagosian.com/exhibitions/ed-ruscha–october-05-2016 .
Then there was the Lights of Soho gallery, a small cafe/bar space showing neon lights from ‘Gods own Junk Yard’ in Walthamstow, the collection of Artist Chris Bracey http://godsownjunkyard.co.uk/gallery.html
A good experience all round!
