GB2341: Thursday 17 February: Opening of New Exhibition (Muse) at the Royal Over-Seas League


Message 2341:

* THURSDAY 17 FEBRUARY (evening): MUSE: THE EXHIBITION at the ROYAL OVER-SEAS LEAGUE (free event, but booking through Eventbrite required)

Please join me for the private view of a new exhibition at the Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL - ) on Thursday 17 February, starting at 6pm and ending at 8pm.

The Exhibition:  Muse is a curated group exhibition of works by contemporary artists Sunil Gupta ( ), Kim Leutwyler ( ), Pixy Liao ( ) and Nilupa Yasmin ( ), alongside contextual work loaned from The Estate of Francis Bacon and a set of book illustrations from Dina Razin ( ). Muse tells the true stories of the incredible muses who have inspired art history's masterpieces, and questions the perception that muses are passive, powerless models, at the mercy of influential and older artists. For more information, click on .

Transport and Venue Details:  The address of the venue is Royal Over-Seas League, Over-Seas House, 6 Park Place, off St. James's Street, SW1A 1LR. For a map, click on . The nearest tube station is Green Park (Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly Lines, Zone 1), but Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly Lines) is also within easy walking distance. I will meet people inside the exhibition, and not at a station.

Reserving your Place(s):  Booking through Eventbrite is required. I suggest you book as soon as possible while places remain. Go to , scroll down to the bottom of the page, select the number of places you want and then click on "Register". You may book for up to 10 people, but to prevent ticket wastage, PLEASE do not request more tickets than you are sure to use. If you want to invite others and they are not yet sure, I suggest you ask them to book for themselves. (This is important, because with Eventbrite it is not possible to reduce the number of tickets you require without cancelling your entire booking and then rebooking.) After booking, you should receive your e-tickets by return. Please note that you will not have to show your tickets at the venue, so there is no need to print them. If you have successfully booked, your names will be on the guest list.
