I would like to report a wildly successful #drinkingaboutmuseums #DavidBowieIs at the V&A at the beginning of April.
Museum professionals from the Tate, Science Museum, Museum of London, British Museum (just to name a few) showed up for an interesting and informal chat with the curator and researcher who put together the David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A. We then got to see it for ourselves and grab a drink at a local pub to reflect on the exhibition afterwards.
It was so much fun that we’d like to do it again! So save the date for our next #drinkingaboutmuseums on Friday May 10th starting at 7pm. It’s graciously being hosted by the Tate (Tate Modern location) thanks to Sharna Jackson. The Social Media Team will be talking to us about their campaign for the immensely popular pop art exhibition on Lichtenstein. Then we’ll get a chance to see the exhibition and afterwards meet up at the Founders Arms pub on the river.
We are now meeting at the River Entrance not the Turbine Hall as it is closed. Please arrive promptly at 7pm.
Space is limited for the talk and exhibition viewing so email me (m.kerr at vam.ac.uk) to reserve your space ASAP.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
