Two thrilling events featuring WTCD cohorts appearing around central London this week:
Heavy Pencil (ICA)
Thursday 7 May | FREE
Mimi Leung is taking a break from drawing landscapes and recording dingo songs in the Outback in order to visit the ICA with her cohorts, visual and sound artists Tom Moore and Ad Hoc. They will be drawing in response to music produced by each other, plus better-known songs remixed live by Ad Hoc, and they might even play a live song or two.
Transformations (National Gallery)
Friday 8 May | FREE
Princes, showgirls, painted ladies and dazzling gentlemen descend on the Gallery in May to take part in a series of live art events and costume parades.
Models wearing costumes designed and interpreted by students from Wimbledon College of Art – and inspired by paintings in the National Gallery Collection – perform outside the Gallery between 5.30pm and 6pm (weather permitting).
After the parade outside, the Gallery’s Sainsbury Wing Theatre stage becomes a catwalk for a special free show. Here, the costume designers and makers will talk about their creations.
