Rhythm and Reaction: the age of jazz in Britain – major exhibition opens on Saturday
The exhibition Rhythm & Reaction opens at Two Temple Place, London on Saturday 27 January and runs through to 22 April.
Marking 100 years of jazz reaching Britain, Rhythm & Reaction will explore the impact that jazz had on Britain from 1918. Drawing on the richness of regional public collections throughout the UK, including the National Jazz Archive, this exhibition is organised by the Bulldog Trust and The Arts Society, and brings together an eclectic range of media from painting, printmaking and cartoons, to moving film, instruments and the all-important sound of jazz.
The exhibition is curated by Catherine Tackley, Professor and Head of Music at the University of Liverpool, and author of The Evolution of Jazz in Britain, 1880–1935.
Two Temple Place is a spectacular neo-Gothic mansion, built by William Waldorf Astor on the Embankment, London. Astor had emigrated to England in 1891 as arguably the richest man in the world and no expense was spared when work began on Two Temple Place in 1892.
Entry to the exhibition is free, and full details including opening times are here. https://twotempleplace.org/
Alongside the exhibition is a wonderful variety of 30 events and activities – live jazz on Wednesday evenings, curator’s tours, half-term workshops and craft activities for children, lectures, masterclasses, cocktail classes and more!
