Blitz kids at Lucy Bell

Lucy Bell Gallery is exhibiting some rarely seen photographs by Terry Smith of the Blitz Kids era. This was a club hosted by Steve Strange and Rusty Egan on Tuesday nights in Covent Garden and went some way in launching the New Romantics Movement.

Soundings: in search of one father’s war

In March 2017, on a visit to Venice, artist Kate Gritton found herself wandering the corridors of the Jewish Museum. Turning a corner, she came face-to-face with a photograph of a group of people, one the spitting image of her father. The exhibition featured British soldiers in World War II during liberation, but as far as Kate knew, while her father had been in Italy, he hadn’t been stationed in Venice. Thus began a journey of discovery, the expression of which are the 23 paintings that form Soundings, a month-long exhibition, which opens on 29 May at the Hastings Arts Forum. Here, A. Vasudevan catches up with the artist.
