ART fans can enjoy the cabaret feel of Berlin in the 1920s and early 30s at an exhibition in Stockbridge this weekend.
IAP Fine Art London is bringing the exhibition You Can’t Go Back, You Think You Can, But You Can’t by established British artist Chris Gollon to Stockbridge Town Hall.
Gollon has exhibited at St Paul’s Cathedral and has works in major public collections, including the British Museum.
His work is attracting increasing acclaim in the national press and specialist arts press, and has featured on Alan Yentob’s BBC1 programme Imagine.
His painting Birth was used as part of the story in Hollywood’s Twilight saga movie Breaking Dawn Part 1.
The exhibition ponders whether recent attempts at the revival of burlesque cabaret in modern Berlin are possible, and as well as fashion, time and the decisions we make.
The title painting is a Gollonesque cover of Otto Dix’s portrait of Sylvia von Harden, which is also the opening tableau vivant camera shot in the film Cabaret.
The exhibition is open from 11am to 6pm on Saturday and 10.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday.
