New free art exhibition celebrates The Age of Jazz in Britain

Marking 100 years since jazz reached Britain, London’s Two Temple Place venue will reopen to the public on Saturday 27 January 2018, with its seventh annual Winter Exhibition, ‘Rhythm & Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain’, produced by the Bulldog Trust in partnership with The Arts Society.

Curated by Catherine Tackley, Head and Professor of Music at the University of Liverpool, the event will bring together painting, prints, cartoons, textiles and ceramics, moving film, instruments and the all-important jazz sound to explicitly examine the influence of jazz on British art, design and wider society.

Tackley told Jazz FM: “This exhibition tells the story of the ever-popular jazz age in new ways, focussing on British depictions of jazz to understand what the music meant to artists and assessing the resultant image of jazz in the public sphere, as well as considering how jazz was encountered in everyday, domestic environments. Above all, the exhibition links the music with the aesthetics of art produced in response to it, uniquely foregrounding the impact of jazz music on ‘jazz age’ art.”

The exhibition is free to the public, and open from 27 January to 22 April (except Tuesdays) at Two Temple Place, London, WC2R 3BD. More at www.twotempleplace.org
