Winifred Nicholson, Cyclamen and Primula – ca. 1923, oil on board. Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge
Susie Biller, Head of Communications
On an icy Friday in the second week of January a number of staff from Kettle’s Yard made their way to mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art). The visit was timed so that we could catch the Winifred Nicholson exhibition before it closes.
It was great to meet many of the staff there, hear about their plans and wander around the beautiful galleries. While we build the new Kettle’s Yard we are taking some time to visit other museums and galleries around the country and learn from what they do. At mima we were impressed by how welcoming the spaces were, as well as enjoying the collection and exhibitions. We also had a great lunch in their new community café with a big open kitchen, DIY furniture, bonsai trees and scrabble.
We also saw an old friend; Kettle’s Yard’s ‘Cyclamen and Primula’ by Winifred Nicholson was displayed alongside many of her other works in the current exhibition at mima. The exhibition is on for just a few weeks more (until 12 February) before it tours to Djanogly Gallery in Nottingham and Falmouth Art Gallery.
