London & Thames Valley Study Group

Public·42 members

The TVG is aiming to offer some new activities in a new format now that the Covid-19 restrictions are (we hope) continuing to wind down.

Here are some thoughts on how we might proceed, with contact details if you wish to comment.

The group remains open to new members!

Based on a limited poll of past attenders at TVG meetings, there is an appetite for a return to gallery study visits. The next scheduled TVG meeting is on 19 February. We would like to get some idea whether any of the following exhibitions/events are of interest. There are two possible in February and a further two suggestions for later in they year.

We would hope to return to the old format of combining the visit and a group discussion with an opportunity for some peer work reviews in a local café or bar.

If there is sufficient interest for any of these we will discuss funding and tutor involvement with OCASA. Please email me or to let us know what you think. Any other suggestions for study visits would also be welcome.

Manal Abu-Shaheen – Beirut

Taymour Grahne Projects presents Beirut, a solo show by Lebanese- American photographer Manal Abu-Shaheen.

Beirut features a selection of works from Manal Abu-Shaheen’s ongoing photographic series. Shot in the city where she was born, this series explores the advertising images, much of it western advertising, and real estate development that overlap with Beirut’s halting attempts to rebuild after conflict.

Art & exhibitions

Martha Skye Murphy and Ceidra Moon Murphy present Postcards Home, an exhibition unearthing erased material with drawing, photography, prose and sculpture.

This multidisciplinary interactive exhibition features prose, sculptures, drawings and large-scale photographs investigating the presence of lost information.

Rebirthing and unearthing the missing material from the machines that produced and erased them, the experience is an eerie spectacle for the eyes and ears.

Collaborating as part of Purcell Sessions, the exhibition brings together composer Martha Skye Murphy and her visual creative partner and sister Ceidra Moon Murphy.
