Late hours Collection Courtauld
Late Hours

On the first Friday of every month, the Fondation presents special late-night events known as Late Hours, a chance to see and experience the building, exhibitions and works in a whole new way.

 

Echoing the exhibition The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism, the March edition of Late Hours takes you across the Channel, giving a carte blanche to the young English music scene, a workshop to try the traditional British craft technique called punch needle, and a tasting of British food.

 

CARTE BLANCHE TO THE ENGLISH MUSIC SCENE

 

HALL

 

8.30 p.m.-9.30 p.m.

CONCERT

GREENTEA PENG

Psychedelic singer Greentea Peng, born in Bermondsey in south-east London, takes inspiration from the many places she loves. In her original music, a blend of solemn and upbeat, Greentea Peng takes you on a pensive journey to the sound of smooth lyrics somewhere between R&B and soul.

 

 

9.30 p.m.-10.30 p.m.

CONCERT

JIMOTHY LACOSTE

A touch of humour, Eighties-tinged instrumental tracks, inimitable style, one-of-a-kind moves: that’s how one might describe London hip-hop’s latest sensation, Jimothy Lacoste. At the tender age of 19, he is already described as one of the year’s most influential UK rappers. Jimothy now shares his syncopated flow at the Fondation.

 

 

ALL EVENING / 7.00 p.m. - 10.30 p.m.

 

PUNCH NEEDLE

WORKSHOP

Try your hand at the very British technique known as punch needle, a specific kind of needlework, with designer Chaumière Oiseau from the Klin d’oeil collective. Using a hollow needle and thick yarn, punch through a small piece of canvas to create raised embroidery patterns and leave with your own personalised handicraft.

 

MICRO-TOURS

LEVELS -1, 1 AND 2

Every 30 minutes starting at the “Micro-Tours” meeting points

Do you speak English? Choose an English word that resonates with select works from the exhibition and set off to see which ones are a nod to that term.
