Julian Opie’s LED sculpture, Curly Hair, 2021 was first shown at Pitzhanger in 2021 as part of Julian Opie’s solo exhibition, coinciding with the reopening of the gallery post-COVID lockdown.

The acquisition of Curly Hair was made possible by the generosity of the artist Julian Opie and support from a diverse group of contributors.

Clare Gough, Director of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, said, “We are truly delighted to be able to retain Curly Hair at Pitzhanger for the future enjoyment of all the public — an artwork with remarkable abilities to break down the traditional barriers that visitors to museums and heritage spaces can experience. Its continued presence will enrich the Ealing community and continue to inspire children and young people.”

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
