Mrs West’s Hats – Beijing book launch

9th October, 2009

Thursday 15th October 7.30pm:
Mrs West’s Hats
by Helen Couchman
a book launch

Helen Couchman’s new book is a thoughtful, quiet meditation on the life of her grandmother, a remarkable lady and the owner of a number of extravagant hats. Tonight we explore memory, history, heritage, and inheritance via this beautiful little work, soon to be launched in London and worldwide.
Currently attracting international media attention, Helen’s new book is launched in a climate of worldwide recession – the most pertinent of times to look back on an earlier, less consumer-focused era, and perhaps to a time when beautiful objects were treasured more than they are today.

Helen Couchman is a visual artist based in Beijing, and the author of ‘Gongren’. Tonight’s discussion features art critic and philosopher Anthony Gorman, and Time Out’s fabulous art editor Stacey Duff.
