10 October 2015 – 13 March 2016
The work of progressive English organisation The Kibbo Kift Kindred (1920-1932) is presented in an archive display at the Whitechapel Gallery opening 10 October 2015. Intellectual Barbarians: The Kibbo Kift Kindred explores the creative output of the group, whose idealistic ambitions for world peace were rooted in a shared appreciation of nature and handicraft.
The Whitechapel Gallery has invited Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander (b. 1967) to make a work of art for the annual Children’s Commission. The new work explores childhood fears ranging from ‘spiders’ and ‘heights’ to ‘talking trees’ and ‘electric ghosts’.
