Dear friends and colleagues,
Here at KQ HQ, we're firm believers that old clothes can be made new with a little needle and thread. Just look at how we dress! And like a beloved knitted jumper, our Private Views have been a staple of our events schedule for as long as we care to remember. We've loved bringing Knowledge Quarter staff and public up close with the many extraordinary exhibitions in the area. Still, we thought it was time for a little revamp.
Enter our collaborative Private Views. The new series will feature supplementary contributions from various Knowledge Quarter partners, who'll share their unique perspectives and expertise on exhibition content.
In the first in this upcycled series, we'll be visiting the Brunei Gallery, SOAS, whose spectacular exhibition of items from the Karun Thakar collection exploring how recycling informs many historic Japanese artistic practices, will be supplemented by a talk from award-winning textile artist, Alice Burnhope, joining us from KQ partner Cockpit Arts.
We look forward to seeing you there.
With best wishes,
