The Bloomsbury Effect

The Bloomsbury Effect was a new and exciting collaboration between the Courtauld Gallery, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the Wolverhampton Society of Artists. The display consisted of three works from the Courtauld Gallery’s early 20th century collections, carefully selected to give visitors an insight to the significant developments in British art happening at the time the society was founded.

The exhibition ran from December 2019 to February 2020, the audio guide and images are still available and features expert commentary from Barnaby Wright, from the Courtauld Gallery, and Brendan Flynn, exhibition curator. Listen on Artimbarc.

To coincide with the exhibition Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Wolverhampton City Archives curated displays about the history of the Courtauld rayon factory in the city. You can find out more about this on the audio guide. Listen on Artimbarc.

Events and learning workshops were held alongside the exhibition, including workshops for the local Still Lively and Art Forum groups, public talks by the curator, and a walking tour of Courtauld heritage sites.
