Our Woman of the Week is Edith Collier!

Edith Marion Collier was born in Wanganui, New Zealand, in 1885. She studied art at the Wanganui Technical School before leaving for London in 1912 to further her training, gaining important support from Australian expatriates Margaret Preston and Frances Hodgkins. Collier returned to New Zealand in 1921 to an artistic environment hostile to modernism and gradually faded into obscurity.

Ben Uri Gallery and Museum is excited to announce our next exhibition “Uncharted Streets” in collaboration with The Centre for British Photography. The exhibit features rare vintage prints by five of Britain’s leading photographers who were each born elsewhere – from Central Europe to the Caribbean – but successfully built their lives and careers here. Each has had considerable influence on British photography and visual culture at large and this is a rare opportunity to see each in this wider context.

The exhibition opens at Ben Uri Gallery on Boundary Road in St John’s Wood, London, on 17 January and runs until 8 March every Wednesday to Friday with Sunday openings to be announced. A full digital event programme will accompany the physical exhibition on benuri.org

Have you ever stood on your head and looked at artworks upside down? Probably not. So to save you trying that have a look at this exhibition, which allows you to recognise that often images are just as interesting upside down.

🔎If you think this is nonsense, then you missed the October 2022 announcement that a great masterpiece by the abstract Dutch artist Piet Mondrian has been hanging upside down for 75 years and no one noticed.

The Downside up work of the week is RUDOLF LEHMANN, DONKEY, 1965

Our Woman of the Week is Milein Cosman!

Milein (Emilie) Cosman was born into a Jewish family in Gotha, Germany in 1921 and educated in Switzerland before immigrating to England in 1939; she studied drawing and printmaking at the Slade School of Fine Art (1939–42), which relocated to Oxford during the war. In 1946 she moved to Hampstead, north London, where her circle included fellow émigré artists Fred Uhlman, John Heartfield and Victor ‘Vicky’ Weisz. She is best known for her drawings of many important twentieth-century cultural figures, as well as her 40-year collaboration with her Viennese émigré husband, musician, musicologist and broadcaster, Hans Keller.
