Tonight I attended a party with my sister to celebrate the launch of the new Bridge exhibition at Musuem of London Docklands which is opening tomorrow.
Bridge is the largest art exhibition ever to be staged at the Museum of London Docklands. Drawing on the museum’s significant art collections, the exhibition will feature rarely seen contemporary and historical artworks, alongside photography and film to consider the significance of bridges within London’s landscape.
The hosts were very entertaining and friendly. Music was provided by Sam Lee, a Mercury prize nominated folk singer. The atmosphere was great and the place was full of professionals in the media industry.
As interesting as the actual exhibition is, the cocktails and canapés served was what kept catching my eye, of course. They were flowing non-stop, I mean it and I ate so many oysters.
We spotted a random green screen which would give a backdrop of a bridge, the photos will be sent to me within a day or so and I will upload them once I receive them. For now though, here is a little sneak-peak of the silly photo shoot.
Then of course I continued to do what I do best…. eat more, desserts this time.
I tweeted a little something something and look who popped up on the screen. It’s sad I know, but I found it slightly exciting, my 2 seconds of fame.
After getting all of the food, drinking and activities out of the way, we finally checked out the exhibition. We loved it because it was a mix of contemporary and historical photos, there was something for everyone.
As much as I liked it, I will not put any other photos up because that would ruin it for you. The actual exhibition was not too big which is good (for those who have short attention spans such as myself). From Hungerford to Blackfriars, Westminster and Millennium, Bridge also looks at how London’s bridges allow people to move around and experience the city – most of us pass them everyday!
It’s free and definitely worth a look! Check it out at http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/docklands/whats-on/exhibitions-displays/bridge/
Last but not least, a massive thumbs up for the organisers of tonight’s event, you did a fanstastic job.
