Barbican Association A great big Olympic Bounce


Gaby Robertshaw reports on two more outings she has arranged for BA members next year.


I Gaby Robertshaw


f we hadn’t been round the Olympic site at Stratford last year, I could almost be persuaded that ‘Gods own County’ was hosting the games in their entirety next year.


Acres of local news columns in Yorkshire celebrate the 2012 practise camps coming ‘Up North’ - from the arrival of gold medal winner Liu Xiang and his Chinese athletics team mates in Leeds to Tom Daley and the British divers set to be joined by the Brazilian judo team in Sheffield. To redress the balance I have set about arranging another Olympic treat for BA members. With official visits to the Olympic site likely to end soon, where better to view the Olympic Stadium from than the top floor of Formans, Britains’s oldest salmon smokers. A tour of the smokehouse and lunch have been arranged for Thursday 19 April 2012


Formans, some 10 minutes walk from Hackney


Wick have also opened an art project space over their smokery with openings on the first Thursday of each month from 6pm. It overlooks the London 2012 Olympic Park, and was founded to provide artists with a high profile platform from which to introduce their work to new audiences. Our second BA outing for 2012 takes on an artistic bent too. Tracey Emin has recently furnished 10 Downing Street with her neon ‘more passion’. If you want a glimpse ‘behind the scenes’ at what might have been put in its place, join me at the Government Art Collection in early 2012.
