Yr11 GCSE Art Trip Jan 2017

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
