Over the last year, we have been working with the Alfred Cohen Art Foundation on a project to mark the artist’s centenary this year. Born in Chicago in 1920, but choosing to live most of his life in England, four exhibitions of Alfred Cohen’s work were planned in London and Norfolk. The King’s College, London exhibition opened at Bush House on 16 March, but was forced to close the next day due to the pandemic.
We hope parts of the centenary programme will still be able to go ahead at a later date and that as many people as possible get to discover the work of this amazing artist who spent the last two decades of his life in Norfolk. Meanwhile, you can view an online version of the London exhibition here and watch this great film from Coda Films about Alfred’s work above.
The film includes interviews with Diana Cohen, Paul Greenhalgh (Director, Sainsbury Centre), Jacky Klein (art historian and broadcaster) and Sarah MacDougall (Ben Uri Gallery and Museum).
