Everything is art; everything is Politics: The Art of Ai Weiwei
Thursday 6th February 2020

AI Weiwei is one of the leading cultural figures of his generation. Throughout his career, he has never shied away from difficult truths and always resolutely fought for freedom of expression. This lecture will examine the provocative and often beautiful work of Ai Weiwei in the context of dissident art in China, Europe and South America.

Radlett Art Society
King Tutankhamun Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh
Sunday 22nd March 2020 - Saatchi Gallery
** Now full with waiting list **

The largest number of King Tutankhamun treasures ever to leave Egypt will be in London for an exhibition which organisers say will never happen again. It will have 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which have never left Egypt before. The objects will include a gold inlaid miniature coffin which contained the king’s liver after it was removed during the mummification process, a gilded wooden bed with carved lion feet probably made specially for Tutankhamun’s funeral and a gilded wooden shrine showing intimate scenes of royal domestic harmony. One of two life-sized guardian statues of the king, which flanked the sealed entrance to his burial chamber, will also be among the artefacts leaving Cairo for the first time.

Note the initial batch of tickets has been sold out for this trip but we may be able to get some more. If you would like to book please contact Gary Harding via the Carrier Pigeon or see their website http://www.radlett-art-society.co.uk
