Minimalism Massimo and interesting connections

At the opening of Lorenzo Belenguer's show Minimalism Massimo at the Gallery at Willesden Green - a great coincidence and very nice to meet Kate Keara Pelen, whose ink and embroidery on paper is displayed.

Just before Christmas, someone told me about Kate's work which is on display in Ealing for the next few weeks. Need to go and see it. She is interested in the 'conventions, rituals and structures of spiritual practice', as we are in Stitch. Interesting connections could be made.
Otherwise... Lorenzo's show is a triumph. It's been two years in the making. He says he was waiting for the right credit crunch moment so that the exhibition, showing contemporary responses to minimalism, would have the maximum impact. With works by Joseph Bueys, Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Martin Creed...
