White Cube and IWM

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Visited the White Cube in Bermondsey to see Tracy Emin’s show. To cheer myself up went to the IWM to see WW1 paintings and engravings. See below! I am also very concerned about the revamp of the IWM by Foster and Partners. It seems to me to be an Architectural display rather than a display of the museums wonderful artefacts. I would like to hear any other comments. There seems to be far less on display than before ,now maybe it was thought there was to much of a jumble but i am sure people love to see lots of items and now there is little room for them. I gather lots of items have been removed to Duxford which is fine if you can get there.

Natalie is an acclaimed textile designer and tutor at Central St Martins. She has taught hundreds of fashion students over the years and the Central would be a lesser place without her. At the moment she is showing and selling some of her work at a wonderful store in Hoxton called PITFIELD in Pitfield street. The store has an eclectic ¬†array of goods from the 50s to the present day and is owned by Paul Brewer. The store also combines a great little cafe .It is well worth a visit to see Natalie’s work and to have
