Two Temple Place & the 2022 Exhibition
Two Temple Place is a dazzling architectural gem in central London, built in 1895 by
William Waldorf Astor, then the worlds richest man and part of a complex historic dynasty.
Owned by a registered charity, in 2011 we opened our first annual free exhibition, and
since then exhibitions have attracted over 400,000 visitors. We now also run a growing
programme of cultural and community events and projects designed to open our doors
more often, to more people.
The January April 22 exhibition, Body Vessel Clay, focuses on the work of Black women
ceramicists, spanning 70 years of the artform, and beginning with the seminal Nigerian
potter, Ladi Kwali and exploring her influence and resonance on ceramics globally. It
brings together a rich history of ceramics, celebrating a younger generation of
international contemporary women disrupting tradition with radical new approaches to
clay. The exhibition is accompanied by a schools programme, public events and
workshops programme, and a digital programme engaging a wider audience in London
and through the regional venues.
