As part of the preparation for the GCSE exam Year 11 went to Phillip’s Auction House to see the preview for The Editions auction https://www.phillips.com/auctions/auction/UK030117
The Year 11 were generally amazed at some of the prices of the work. One of David Hockney’s iPad drawings went for around £25,000.
We then went to see the mini-retrospective of the amazing Ceramicist Ken Price who died recently at Hauser and Wirth Gallery in Saville Row. http://www.hauserwirth.com/exhibitions/2984/ken-price-a-survey-of-sculptures-and-drawings-1959-y-2006/view/
After that we took the bus to Hyde Park to see the intricate and detailed early paintings and drawings by Zaha Hadid at The Serpentine Gallery, who also died recently.http://www.serpentinegalleries.org/exhibitions-events/zaha-hadid-early-paintings-and-drawings
