Fri 15 Feb, 7-10pm, free entry
We’re having a party to celebrate the opening of Magdalene Odundo: The Journey of Things and we’d love you to join us.
Kenyan-born Magdalene Odundo OBE is one of the world’s most esteemed ceramic artists.
This major exhibition will bring together more than 50 of Odundo’s vessels alongside a large selection of historic and contemporary objects which she has curated to reveal the vast range of references from around the globe that have informed the development of her unique work.
Designed by architect Farshid Moussavi OBE, the exhibition will be a dynamic journey through these diverse inspirations. On display will be British studio pottery; ancient vessels from Greece and Egypt; historic ceramics from Africa, Asia and Central America; ritual objects from across the African continent; Elizabethan dress and textiles; as well as sculptures by artists including Edgar Degas, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Auguste Rodin who have influenced Odundo’s art.
No need to RSVP, just turn up.
