Find out What’s On at Kettle’s Yard here.


February was a busy month with considerable change on the Kettle’s Yard site. Staff regularly visit and it is exciting for us to see it changing shape as walls come down to prepare for new walls to go up.

Demolition continues; parts of the galleries have been taken down and the interior of the old Chinese restaurant/post office and our basement have been cleared out. In a few weeks, the tower crane will be installed on the site to better enable movement of materials around and onto the site.

Away from the building site we are planning activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the gift of Kettle’s Yard to the University of Cambridge this autumn as well as working on many continuing projects. It’s the last month to catch our display, Beauty & Balance at the Fitzwilliam Museum, it ends on 3 April and will be replaced with Being Modern a display that brings together works from Kettle’s Yard with modern works from the Fitzwilliam Museum’s collection.

The exhibition in the entrance to the University Library has now been installed. Alfred Wallis, Italo Valenti and Barbara Hepworth are on display alongside some less well-known works from the collection. The pieces have been chosen by artist Georgie Grace and include two of her prints, you can find out more here and read an interview with Georgie Grace here.

The chamber concert series continues off site in the Old Divinity School at St John’s College, coming soon on the 10 March is the Simon Bolivar String Quartet from Venezeula, more here.
