One of my UMKC colleagues has an English friend who lives in London but travels to Manchester frequently. I met him when he came to KC late last fall, and he’s been sending me useful info for months. Yesterday we spent the afternoon together, having a pretty good Italian meal at Cafe Uno on Albert Square, then going to the Whitworth Art Gallery to see their printmaking/Pop Art exhibit entitled “Editions Alecto: A Fury for Prints, Artists’ Prints and Multiples 1960-81“. (Editions Alecto has their own website). Aftwards, more conversation over tea. All in all, a great way to spend my Sunday.
Update: I forgot to mention one of the most interesting parts of our conversation. He’s a member of this organization devoted to eradicating the British monarchy.
