As many of you know, a power outage occurred throughout the N4 Postal Code area just before our most recent lecture was about to begin. Among other things, it meant that the air conditioning facilities in the lecture room, even once the power was back on, would not be able to operate at their recommended optimum levels until at least halfway through the lecture. As a result, I had no choice but to cancel the lecture.
At present, the electricity is functioning here at the Foundation. However, given that an outage has already occurred and the district’s electrical supply appears to be weak and/or uneven and/or not there, I have no other option but to cancel this week’s coming lecture as well as a precautionary measure.
This is a particular shame because the internationally-nominated guest lecturers who were supposed to have spoken on both nights had already made arrangements to travel to Foundation from their respective homes in different countries.
However, the welfare and safety of all participants and staff has to be my number one priority at all times.
By way of apology, I will shortly be presenting a small taster of some of my personal favourite pieces currently on display in our Modernism on The Cover Exhibition in the Gallery Space.
