Knowledge Quarter Private Views

The Knowledge Quarter is developing a series of private breakfast views for staff of Knowledge Quarter organisations; making the wealth of cultural resources within it accessible, providing opportunities to develop new networks and building deeper engagement with the KQ as a whole.

Our first private view held in May, of the British Library’s Shakespeare in Ten Acts exhibition, was an overwhelming success; demonstrating the suitability and enthusiasm for the format beyond giving partners the opportunity to explore a major exhibition celebrating and understanding the making of the cultural icon that Shakespeare is today.

Last week, the Foundling Museum hosted a successful private view of Found where Knowledge Quarter partners were invited to experience an exhibition freighted with anecdote and emotion, looking for something that in order to be found, it must first be lost.

We are delighted to say that our next private view will be at the Brunei Gallery at SOAS, University of London. KQ staff and partner organisations will have an exclusive look at Hong Ling: A Retrospective celebrating the breath-taking life work of renowned Chinese landscape painter Hong Ling. Further information will be circulated to partners shortly.

The KQ is hoping to make this a regular series and to develop a schedule of private views that staff members of KQ organisations can look forward to. We are looking for partner organisations to kindly suggest future possible exhibitions that would be suitable for a private view.
