Caught by the River

A Trio of Upcoming Events

30th September 2017

Common Ground at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

There are a few upcoming events which have caught our eye. For your consideration:

– On 10 October, at the Museum of London, architectural historian Tom Keeley curates an informal evening of talks, readings and film screenings with leading artists, writers and campaigners including Kathrin Böhm, John Grindrod, Verity-Jane Keefe, Marion Shoard and Ken Worpole. From green belt fields and canal towpaths to chain store retail parks, cul-de-sac estates and motorway junctions, this salon will reflect on what life at the edges can tell us about the centre. What do these places tell us about London and where it is going? More info and tickets here.

The Last Tuesday Society teams up with the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic to present a photo exhibition of items from the museum’s collection. The photos, taken by Sara Hannant, are those featured in Of Shadows: One Hundred Objects from The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, released by Strange Attractor Press last year. Objects featured include a Witch Mirror, a waxen curse poppet, spells and charms and items from a Black Magician’s altar. Open November 3rd 2017 – 28th Febuary 2018 at The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History, Mare Street, London. More info here.

– And for those of you who REALLY like to plan ahead, there’s the Common Ground exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It doesn’t open until May next year, but we thought some of you might like a heads up anyway, especially considering that we’re already getting excited about it. Featuring both archival material and brand new commissions by artists including Assemble, Christine Mackey and Alec Finlay. Find out more here.
