Modern Art Oxford celebrates 50th Anniversary Party

HMG LAW LLP, longstanding sponsors of MAO, were represented at its 50th Anniversary Party by partners, Roland Fuggle and Christopher Parker.  Guests were greeted in the yard by a performance: Feeding the Fish - Pixel-Poi

Once inside the lower bar, there was no shortage of champagne and canapés as guests mingled and chatted.  Invited to ascend to the upper gallery, guests were treated to a performance: A String Section by Reckless Sleepers.  This was perhaps the most diverting event of the evening; young ladies poised precariously on wooden chairs whilst undercutting their positions by sawing through the supporting legs, all against a background of psychedelic images displayed on the wall behind. 

There then followed speeches by the Chair, David Isaac, and the Director, Paul Hobson, with music and dancing afterwards.  All in all, it was a most memorable night and we look forward to supporting the next 50 years of MAO.
