Good Grief! Gallery Late: Peanuts For Your Thoughts

Mon 21 Jan 2019
18.30 - 21.00
£19.00 / £16.00 concessions
Embankment Galleries
South Wing

An evening of entertainment and enlightenment inspired by self help and Schulz. Join us on the notorious Blue Monday for an artistically led journey of self-discovery, unpicking philosophical side of Peanuts with added gallery activities.

Peanuts creator Shulz’s acute understanding of the workings of the human psyche, as well as his sense of humour, poking fun at the rise of ‘shrink culture’ in America, meant that Peanuts became both a balm to soothe and a tool to heal in a decade of social and political upheaval.

In consideration of Blue Monday, otherwise known as the most depressing day of the year, we welcome you to enjoy an exclusive after hours view of the Good Grief, Charlie Brown! exhibition alongside additional gallery activity exploring how sharing cultural sensibilities with one another opens our eyes and minds to new ways of seeing, doing and being.

In a society evermore reliant on self-help consider new ways of creatively communicating for the New Year ahead. Or voice your thoughts at artist Marcus Coates’ interpretation of Lucy’s Psychiatry Booth, but beware of the misdirected confidence that might strike back!

Tickets include exhibition entry, complimentary drink, and the full access to late night activities.
