The Ken Stradling Collection- an Introduction Lecture by Chris Yeo, Curator, the Ken Stradling Collection
Thursday 29th November 2018, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Clifton Library, Princess Victoria Street, Clifton
Chris Yeo’s talk will give an overview of this unique and nationally important collection of modern design and decorative art. Ken Stradling was instrumental in introducing modern design to West Country consumers and, in doing so, became good friends with many of the giants of the design world, people like Lucie Rie, David Mellor and Gordon Russell. Clifton is deeply grateful to him for transferring his unique and nationally important collection of modern design and decorative art to a public foundation. The talk sheds light on his friendships and offers some amusing anecdotes along the way. Chris will also discuss his own role as curator of the collection and share his love of a few of his favourite pieces.
