Tube posters and body parts in this week’s Museum Lates

Posted at 8:00 am, September 19, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Secret London

Autumn is looming. The sun may be retreating, but we all know that most fun happens after dark. Stay out and enjoy our pick of this week’s museum lates.

Consider your body and the world at Wellcome Collection on Thurs September 19, 7-8.30pm. Free.

As part of renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor’s exhibition ‘Thinking with the body’, Thursday’s event considers exactly ‘What is a Body?’. Experts from the fields of anthropology and dance will consider how a man-made object can be seen as a person. Yes, you read that right. From ceremonial rituals performed in Papa New Guinea to the way you consider your phone to be an extension of you; speakers Scott deLahunta, Research Director of Wayne McGregor|Random Dance and James Leach, Professor of Anthropology at University of Western Australia, will explore the way our bodies and objects interact.

Frolic in Poster Playground at London Transport Museum on Fri September 20, 6.45-10pm. £8 (£6 concessions).


The popular exhibition Poster Art 150: London Underground’s Greatest Designs, is opening its doors for a late night party. The show has been extended until January 5, but for one night only the exhibition will be transformed into a Poster Playground – a place of revelry and nostalgia for guests. Alongside a guided tour of the 150 greatest underground posters from the past 100 years  (chosen from London Transport Museum’s collection of over 3,300) there will be transport-inspired face painting, balloon sculpting by Miss Ballooniverse, a wandering magician, Victorianesque fortune telling, unique 3D street art in Covent Garden Piazza and 2-for-1 cocktails on offer all evening. Ally Swadling
