Mondrian || Nicholson: In Parallel
Thursday 23 Feb, 29 Mar and 10 May 2012, until 9pm
Join us as we get into the '30s swing and recreate the decade in which Piet Mondrian and Ben Nicholson established a remarkable creative relationship and produced some of their greatest works.
You can discover this largely untold story in the exhibition Mondrian || Nicholson: In Parallel and also enjoy our world-famous permanent collection.
Enjoy music, talks, workshops, as well as delicious food and drink in the Gallery Cafe.
The Joshua Jaswon quartet from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama will be playing music by Lester Young, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker. Featuring Miguel Gorodi on Trumpet, Nicholas Costley-White on Guitar and Andrew Robb on Double Bass.
Dr Livia Carvalho, Research Associate at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, will be joined by art historian Vanja Malloy to discuss how the eye sees colour and colour relationships in art, with a particular focus on the works of Mondrian and Nicholson.
Equivalent Relationships: Art Workshop
Join us for art workshops and games that explore colour, shape, and composition. You can also take part in creating a large floor collage inspired by Mondrian and Nicholson!
