VISIT TO THE ESTORICK COLLECTION, Tuesday 16 May 2017
We have arranged an exclusive visit to the Estorick Collection, which brings together some of the finest and most important works by Italian artists of the first half of the twentieth century. It is Britain's only gallery devoted to modern Italian art.
Tea and coffee will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch to eat at the gallery, or there are places nearby for lunch. The gallery's café will be closed on the day of our visit.
In the morning we will have a guided tour of the Giacomo Balla exhibition, Designing the Future, which presents a career-spanning retrospective of one of Italian Futurism's most important and consistently inventive artists. Encompassing his early Divisionist imagery, iconic Futurist paintings and examples of his distinctive work in the applied arts, it will offer a comprehensive survey of Balla's multi-faceted activity between 1895-1958, including many works rarely seen outside Italy.
In the afternoon there will be an introduction to the Estorick's permanent collection, followed by a creative workshop exploring Futurism's approach to colour and movement.
The cost of this visit is £16.50 per person, including tea and coffee but not lunch. Further details are available in the attachment below, including the booking form (members only).
