Jack Bilbo – Artist and Cultural Impresario
7 October 2021 6:00 pm
Gallerist Jane England will talk about the larger-than-life figure of artist and impresario Jack Bilbo, who presided over cultural activities in Onchan internment camp on the Isle of Man, and went on to found the eclectic and eccentric Modern Art Gallery, the only gallery to open in London during World War II, which showed the work of artists such as Picasso and Kurt Schwitters alongside that of lesser-known artists, many of them fellow émigrés. She will be joined by Bilbo’s grandson, Ben Woodeson.
