We have to thank Anish Kapoor for the show… Anish invited me to a dinner where I sat next to Caroline Douglas who runs the Arts Council collections. She was telling me about plans they had to showcase some amazing modernist works and were looking for suitable locations… Obviously it was Park Hill that came straight to my mind.
Park Hill - two of the show apartments to be specific - was ultimately chosen as the exhibition location and then the lovely Helen Kaplinsky won a competition to curate the show. She has selected some amazing works which look fantastic in a domestic apartment setting.
British Modern Remade is a fantastic opportunity to see some great British Modernism in one of Britain’s great Modernist buildings. The exhibition will run until 16th June and is free to view. Details of the public programme of tours and talks can be found on the Arts Council collection website.
Some tweets from the evening:
