Summer Art in Hyde Park

Let me take you on a walk through Hyde Park to visit its exceptionally well curated series of summer shows outdoors and in!

The Serpentine has out done itself with a summer pavilion designed this year by Mexican architect Friday Escobedo, whose installation plays with notions of time such as the Greenwich Meridian, and the passage of the sun through the day. The Sackler gallery is exhibiting mesmerising geometric paintings by 2016 Turner Prize, Tomma Abt; and the Mastaba -a temporary sculpture floating on the Serpentine – by Christo and Jeanne-Claude (remember they wrapped up the German Reichstag in 1995) will complete our exploration.

We will meet at 9.45 am. at the beautiful Sackler Gallery café designed by Zaha Hadid, and start our visit at 10.15 am. We should be finished by midday.

Dates :

Tuesday 26th June
Monday 2nd July
Tuesday 3rd July
Wednesday 4th July

Do book your place (cjolanda@icloud.com) as soon as possible. Places are limited.

Studio visit with Taline Temizian

Taline Temizian : Coding in Art
Studio vist

It’s spring so it’s time to be a bit adventurous and go out of the usual London centre path. This time I am bringing you to an artist’ studio in Forest HIll. This exceptionally talented Armenian artist roams the world from Montreal to Brussels with group and solo shows in London, New York, Berlin, and Madrid to name just a few, having placed her work in both private and public collections, raising further interest in some of the best museums worldwide. Here she is, ready to welcome us into her main studio of 15 years and to share her artistic explorations, from coding memory systems to love, loss, memory and trauma through figuration, expressionism in paintings like Faust (Marlowe’s one not Goethe’s!). Traditional media paintings cohabit perfectly with more conceptual and new media work; who said you have to choose between the two?

Dates: Wednesday 23rd May (other dates further available), 10.15 am approx (it takes less or just about an hour to get there from Barnes/Fulham/Putney. We’ll meet in a cafe first near the overground train station Honor Oak Park and then walk to the artist’s studio, which is just a few minutes away)
Venue: Honor Oak Park SE23
Duration: 1.45 – 2.00 hours approx.
