16 TAKE AN

16 TAKE AN ‘IMMERSIVE’ TRIP TO THE REGENT’S PARK SORTING OFFICE Visitors are invited to make a free ‘interactive’ visit to a pop-up WW1 mail sorting office in The Regent’s Park – evoking the giant wooden building called the ‘Home Depot’ that handled all the mail from the front line 100 years ago. Two free public events, hosted by The Royal Parks charity and The Royal Parks Guild on 12 and 19 May, invite the public to discover this vital role played by London’s Royal Parks during wartime Britain. The visits are part of a series of activities hosted by The Royal Parks, together with The Royal Parks Guild, to mark the centenary of the Great War and the involvement of the parks. During the war, soldiers and their families sent over two billion letters and 140 million parcels. Every single item of post sent to members of the British Army went through the Home Depot at The Regent’s Park. It was sorted by thousands of postal workers – many of whom were women – and sent on to soldiers across the world. The sorting office was believed to be the largest wooden building in the world – initially it covered four acres of The Regent’s Park and was then extended, increasing its area to just over five acres. Now one hundred years on, visitors can join an immersive experience, bringing to life the story of the 2,500 people who worked there to make sure soldiers' mail was delivered safely, securely and quickly, even work a shift, as part of an interactive session led by The Postal Museum. There is a First World War outdoor exhibition showing how the Post Office kept the war going and how jammy buns kept them going. And there’s a chance to write a postcard to a soldier, a postwoman, your great-grandparents, or a parks gardener to tell them what you think about the First World War. The First World War project runs until December 2019, with a host of events being organised in the Royal Parks over the next two years.

Staged to coincide with the 2018 Summer Exhibition, The Great Spectacle will tell the story of the annual show by featuring highlights from the past 250 years. The exhibition will include over 80 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints from the first Summer Exhibition through to the present day by artists such as Sir Joshua Reynolds, Angelica Kauffman, Elizabeth Butler, Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Lawrence, John Constable, J.M.W. Turner, John Everett Millais, Sir Frederic Leighton, John Singer Sargent, Peter Blake, Tracey Emin, Zaha Hadid, Sir Michael Craig-Martin, David Hockney and Wolfgang Tillmans, amongst others. Since 1769, the Summer Exhibition has played a central role within London’s art world. This great spectacle, dominated by the famously crowded and collage-like arrangement of pictures across the RA’s walls, has captured the interest of millions of visitors. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the exhibition provided the main forum within which artists and architects could showcase their individual practice and compete with their rivals for popular and critical acclaim. Today, the exhibition continues to feature works by distinguished painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers and architects as well as up-and-coming artists. The Great Spectacle will focus on moments in which the Summer Exhibition made an especially significant impact within the British and European art world, and on pictures that experienced particular success or failure within the exhibition space. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e

Linda McCartney (1941–1998): The Beatles at Brian Epstein’s home in Belgravia at the launch of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. London, 1967. Bromide print. © 1967 Paul McCartney. GIFT FROM PAUL MCCARTNEY TO NEW V&A PHOTOGRAPHY CENTRE The V&A has announced a major gift of 63 photographs by Linda McCartney, from Paul McCartney and his family. The photographs trace Linda McCartney’s career across four decades, from the 1960s to the 1990s. The collection encompasses portraits of music legends The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, as well as pictures of flora and fauna, and intimate personal portraits, including the McCartney family on holiday. The gift marks the first time that a selection of Linda McCartney’s original Polaroids have ever been made available to the public. Linda McCartney embraced myriad photographic processes and techniques, and the gift includes lithographs, bromide prints, cyanotype prints, platinum prints, photogravures, hand painted prints, contact sheets and Polaroids. This significant gift dramatically increases the V&A’s existing Linda McCartney holdings, which include Self Portrait in Francis Bacon’s Studio and Horse in Landscape, as well as two portraits of Yoko Ono. These pictures join the National Collection of the Art of Photography, held at the V&A. Linda McCartney’s approach to photography was instinctive, believing it to be much more than a technical skill. She was inspired by the photographs of Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange, and the way in which she believed they captured the character of each subject. She took this approach in her own photography, especially in her portraits of rock and roll musicians. Linda was keen to go beyond the public persona, to get under the skin of her famous sitters, and capture ‘every blemish, every bit of beauty, every emotion’. A selection of Linda McCartney’s photographs will go on display in the V&A’s Photography Centre on 12 October. LINDA KITSON TO SHOWCASE THE CITY OF LONDON IN IPAD DESIGNS The City Centre in partnership with the City of London Corporation will host an exclusive new series of works by artist Linda Kitson from 18 May to 1 August. Linda Kitson, who is best known for her work as an official war artist during the Falklands conflict, has created a vivid collection of iPad drawings capturing the Square Mile’s dynamic skyline, with up to 50 works set to be displayed in full technicolour throughout The City Centre gallery. The City Centre will be the City’s ‘hub’ during the London Festival of Architecture from 1–30 June, with this year’s theme being ‘identity’. The show of new work by Linda Kitson will explore the development of key sites across the eastern city cluster and will include locations such as Bishopsgate, Leadenhall, Liverpool Street, Lime Street, St Mary Axe and Broadgate. The City’s built environment has undergone some dramatic transformations, an evolution that can be seen across the entire history of the City of London. The exhibition captures this change, through the buildings, people and the construction. The City Centre is at 80 Basinghall Street, EC2. Open Monday to Saturday from 10.00–17:00. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e 17
