A Clockwork Jerusalem at MK Gallery

a_clockwork_jerusalem_image_by_fat_architecture_-_sam_jacob_1.jpg.940x528_q85_upscaleMK Gallery are delighted to be hosting an in conversation event with the curators of this year’s British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Sam Jacob and Wouter Vantisphout on Thursday 9 October 2014.  They will be joined by Architectural Historian and Broadcaster, Kieran Long.

The Pavilion exhibition, titled “A Clockwork Jerusalem”, explores how the international influences of Modernism became mixed with long standing British sensibilities. It examines how traditions of the romantic, sublime and pastoral, as well as interests in technology and science fiction were absorbed to create a specifically British form of Modernism.

The talk will prove to be fascinating for anyone with an interest in British Modernism, and, of course, the urban history of Milton Keynes.  Tickets are free but pre booking is essential.

On Thursday 7 August we held a presentation at the Gallery of the emerging proposals for the expansion of MK Gallery. This event was very well attended and we were able to gather some excellent feedback on the proposals. We’ve since summarised the questions and comments that were received and have been able to provide responses to them below.

We will be able to provide a further update imminently on our planning submission, but would be more than delighted to receive any further feedback in the meantime.  Please do contact us either through the blog or you can email me directly at jthompson@mkgallery.org with your comments.
