    UCL Art Museum Presents The Haldane Room

    Highlights in British Art from the Slade Painting Collection 1900s – 1950s

    UCL Art Museum will be opening up spaces on the UCL campus that are rarely accessible to the public to present a selection of prize-winning paintings from the Slade Painting Collection. The Haldane Room in the Wilkins Building will be open to visitors on the first Friday of the month between 3-5pm, starting from this Friday, 5th October.

    The paintings in the Haldane Room represent a selection of prize-winning works of art by leading British artists whose work can be found in UK and international museum collections. Importantly, these paintings were made  when the artists were students at the UCL Slade School of Art and before the originality of their creative output was recognised by the establishment.

    The Haldane Room is open to the public as a temporary extension to UCL Art Museum on the first Friday of every month (till March 2012) between 3-5pm.The Haldane Room is located in the North Cloisters of the Wilkins Building, access via main UCL entrance on Gower Street.

    UCL Art Museum is located in the South Cloisters and is open to the public Mon – Fri 1-5pm.
