Trip to the Whitworth

After conducting the worlds longest Doodle Poll three of us finally managed to go to see Elizabeth Price Curates at the Whitworth.  This was a thoroughly interesting exhibition. Of particular interest to Claire was the opportunity to see and crawl under Gustav Metzger's "To Crawl Into" - Anschlus, Vienna, March 1938. In June 2014 Claire went to a talk "Gustav Metzger in conversation with Giles Bailey" presented by Pavillion at Harewood House. This was one of her first trips with the Art Academy and not having studied art, Claire realised how important the Academy was to introducing her to artists she might not stumble across, but who were so signigicant.
