Exciting new art exhibition in the Drawing Schools: Liane Lang, a recent artist-in-residence at the school, has taken advantage of the iconic buildings to put together a compelling portrait of the school’s most familiar venues. She has made subtle changes to the buildings that we know so well, creating overpainted photographs and sculptures that are iconoclastic, but also loving. Some of the works will make you smile. Others will make you see familiar things in a totally different way. Liane is rapidly gaining international fame for her work that takes historical figures and monuments and humanises them by adding figures that poke fun at the solemnity of the objects. She does this while remaining highly respectful and appreciative of the events that have disrupted their history. Drawing Schools from 11th November to 9th December. There will be an Opening Reception and Private View on Saturday 11th November, 7.00-9.00 p.m. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org www.marcellejoseph.com
