Jeremy Deller: English Magic

  • 1 October 2014 — 31 January 2015

Commissioned by the British Council this new exhibition by Jeremy Deller was conceived and created for the British Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia in 2013. The exhibition reflects the roots of much of Deller’s work, focusing on British society such as its people, icons, myths, folklore and its cultural and political history. Deller weaves together high and low, popular and rarefied to create unique and thought provoking work. The exhibition forms part of a national tour, supported by the Art Fund and the first of its kind, that concludes at Turner Contemporary.

La Grande Illusion + Q&A with Louisa Young

  • 24 April 2014 12-2:30pm *on now

These screenings have been curated by author Louisa Young, whose World War I-themed novel My Dear I Wanted to Tell You is this year's Cityread title.

We are delighted to announce that Louisa Young will be appearing in person for a post-show Q&A at The Gate.

Jean Renoir’s classic 1937 World War I drama tells the story of two French officers who are captured and sent to a POW camp. 

Widely recognised as one of the masterpieces of French cinema, LA GRANDE ILLUSION is a timeless tale of brotherhood and heroism set against one of the most evocative of cinematic backdrops.

A Museum in a Classroom

Most people collect and display something in their lives. It might be a collection of family snaps stuck into an album, or holiday souvenirs arranged on a mantlepiece, assembled and displayed without any thought of being a 'collector'. But in the past, and occasionally today, private collections have often formed the basis of new museums.
Developing a museum in the classroom - or at home - is a valuable cross-curricular project which can be linked to the National Curriculum through most subjects, and at all levels.
