Exhibition 'Civilisations Festival at The Red House, Aldeburgh' in The Red House

A nationwide festival which will re-examine the notion of ‘Civilisation’ as originally suggested by Kenneth Clark in his BBC TV series. As part of the festival, there will be a Reading Room exhibition exploring this project and tracing the working relationship between Benjamin Britten and Kenneth Clark himself. The Foundation will also look at how their collections explore the link between ‘high’ culture and rootedness in a particular locale via East Anglian paintings and Britten’s ‘Suffolk opera’ Peter Grimes.
