Two Temple Place & the 2022 Exhibition Two Temple Place is a dazzling architectural gem in central London, built in 1895 by William Waldorf Astor, then the world’s richest man and part of a complex historic dynasty. Owned by a registered charity, in 2011 we opened our first annual free exhibition, and since then exhibitions have attracted over 400,000 visitors. We now also run a growing programme of cultural and community events and projects designed to open our doors more often, to more people. The January – April ’22 exhibition, Body Vessel Clay, focuses on the work of Black women ceramicists, spanning 70 years of the artform, and beginning with the seminal Nigerian potter, Ladi Kwali and exploring her influence and resonance on ceramics globally. It brings together a rich history of ceramics, celebrating a younger generation of international contemporary women disrupting tradition with radical new approaches to clay. The exhibition is accompanied by a schools’ programme, public events and workshops programme, and a digital programme engaging a wider audience in London and through the regional venues.
