Exhibition: 'Hogarth: London Voices, London Lives'
FROM A RAKE’S PROGRESS TO THE CITY TODAY
William Hogarth’s remarkable series of paintings, A Rake’s Progress, famously depicted a morality tale of the city and was bought by Sir John Soane to hang at Pitzhanger in 1802, to inspire and entertain his guests. For the first time in 200 years, it returns as the centrepiece of our next exhibition, reflecting voices and issues in London today.
Ealing’s credentials as West London’s cultural hub took a step forward this month with the announcement that OPEN Ealing will launch the borough’s first permanent arts centre in Ealing’s new Dickens Yard complex.
The new Arts Centre offers local residents a host of engaging classes for all ability levels, including life drawing, arts & craft, music, dance, theatre and professional development for aspiring artists.
Come and join Printer | Maker | Crafter Tania Ahmed for an evening and learn how to create your own monoprints without a press using Gelli Arts plates. In this fun and experimental session you will be creating a series of vibrant prints using gel printing plates, various number & letter stencils, textures and acrylic paints.
The Black Heroes of Mathematics - Nira Chamberlain
The 2017 film Hidden Figures is based on the true story of a group of black female mathematicians that served as the brains behind calculating the momentous launch of the NASA astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
However, these mathematicians of colour are not the only ‘Hidden Figures’. In this talk, The Black Heroes of Mathematics, we will discuss other inspirational men and women who overcame obstacles to prove that mathematics is truly for everybody!
Reflecting on the history of Britain’s South Asian population made in the 70th anniversary year of Partition and Indian Independence.
Weaving together archive footage from across the UK throughout the 20th century these collections touch on disparate communities originally from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Showing how the South Asian diaspora in the United Kingdom has so gloriously and meaningfully enriched life in our country.
We begin the new year and decade with some important firsts in cinema: promising debuts; first-time collaborators; and the first motions of major film movements. Featuring famous all-time greats and lesser-known masterpieces, we hope some of these are new to you.
