The government has announced that with effect from Thursday 5 November England will enter a period of lockdown in order to try to slow the spread of Covid-19. As a direct consequence of this the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art will have to close from that date until 2 December. The museum, shop and café will be open as usual from 11am to 6pm this Wednesday 4 November (12pm-5pm for the café).
The exhibition Italian Threads: MITA Textile Design 1926-1976 has now been extended until 3 April 2021.
Organized in collaboration with the Wolfsoniana, Genoa, Italian Threads showcases 50 years of bold commissions produced for world art fairs, private homes, clubs and ocean liners, encompassing the avant-garde movements of the day from Futurism to Abstract Expressionism.
The Estorick Collection is a registered charity and does not receive public funding. Please consider making a donation to the museum and play a crucial role in supporting the Collection.
