Two Centennial Exhibitions
There is still time to catch two exhibitions on which members of the Department of History of Art have collaborated:
Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud is on at Abbot Hall, Kendal until 5th October 2019. Before transferring to Abbot Hall in July, the exhibition was on show at York Art Gallery. It has garnered very favourable reviews and is a highlight of this year’s Ruskin bi-centenary. It was curated by Dr Richard Johns (University of York) and Dr Suzanne Fagence Cooper (York Art Gallery and University of York).
For information about visiting Abbot Hall, see their website.
At Tate Britain, The Bauhaus and Britain is a a current ‘Spotlight’ display, marking the centenary of the Bauhaus school, founded in 1919. It brings together 48 artworks from across the genre spectrum and was curated by Dr Rachel Smith (Assistant Curator, Modern British Art, Tate Britain), with Professor Michael White (University of York), Dr Elizabeth Darling (Oxford Brookes University) and Dr Robert Sutton (University of Leicester).
The Bauhaus and Britain is free to visit at Tate Britain until 17 November.
