Restless Times

There is a superb exhibition on at Tate Britain at the moment as part of the Great British Art Debate, Restless Times. Taking up just one room, it displays British art from 1914 -1945, including works by many of our favourite artists: Eric Ravilious, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, John Nash. The gallery handout is a wittily presented faux newspaper called 'The Restless Times', made up of related information and actual news reports from the period. Well worth a read.
And rather put me in mind of Old Town's Evening Star (talking of Old Town do look at the great shoot of their afternoon spent at The Red Lion, St. James's, called Piccadilly Pleasures, photographed by Matt Hind.)

Restless Times is on at Tate Britain until 6th November, 2011 and admission is free.
