“You think: ‘Why would anyone want to see me again in a movie? And I don’t know how to act anyway. So why am I doing this?’”
Guess who said that? Astonishingly, it is Meryl Streep, record-holder for the most Academy Awards nominations for any actor ever . The culprit: the infamous “imposter syndrome”, that nasty inner-voice that puts doubts in the most brilliant of minds, as well as a mighty fear of being “found out”, even when their knowledge and talent are widely recognised.
Interestingly enough, research have shown that it is usually the most high-achieving and competent people who are afflicted by it, rather than the real “fraudsters”.
Frederique Andreani, founder of The Good Hedonist and journalist, will run for The B&C Club an interactive workshop. We will examine the theory behind the syndrome (definition, symptoms, socio-economic connections and various types), as well as tips and techniques to beat it.

The V&A opens the largest ever Christian Dior exhibition in the UK.
From 1947 to the present day, the exhibition traces the history and impact of one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers. Through over 500 objects and over 200 rare Haute Couture garments, the exhibition highlights Dior’s total design vision. It also showcases across 11 sections, the exquisite skill and craftsmanship of the ateliers and successive designers from the House of Dior.
From horticulture to global travel and 18th-century decorative arts, the show reveals the sources of inspiration that defined the House of Dior’s aesthetic. From the daring designs of Yves Saint Laurent to the rational style of Marc Bohan, the flamboyance of Gianfranco Ferré, the exuberance of John Galliano, the minimalism of Raf Simons, and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s feminist vision of fashion, the exhibition shows how each successive artistic director has stayed true to Dior’s vision of Haute Couture, while bringing their own creative sensibilities to the House.
Waddington Custot is proud to present ‘Body Disruptions’ – a solo exhibition showcasing the most recent works of artist Alice Anderson.

Anna Barriball’s unequivocal use of materials results in work that hovers beneath the threshold of visibility. Her interventions produce objects that are at once locked in time yet echo the processes by which they are made.
Through her uncanny approach to making, Barriball demonstrates how the aesthetics of everyday life can be reimagined or transformed in unexpected ways.
The B&C Club is kindly invited for a breakfast with the artist, to discover her work which has garnered significant critical acclaim. Anna Barriball is present in major public and private European collections.
The exhibition will bring together 40 works by the artist – the largest collection of his paintings on show in the UK for ten years. Some of his most famous works will be brought together, including Shoes, Starry Night on the Rhône, L’Arlésienne, and the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery.
Van Gogh lived in England for several crucial years between 1873 and 1876. The exhibition will reveal his enthusiasm for British culture, from the novels of Charles Dickens and George Eliot, to paintings by Constable and Millais, some of which are featured in the exhibition.
Tracing Van Gogh from his obscure years in London to the extraordinary national fame he achieved in the 1950s, the exhibition will show how he inspired modern British artists, including Francis Bacon, David Bomberg, and the young Camden Town painters. It shows how his vision set British artists on the road to modern art.
Discover with an art historian the Tate Modern’s latest exhibition. We will enjoy a one hour talk in the auditorium which will provide a grounding to fully enjoy the exhibition. We will then have free access to the exhibition to admire at our own pace.
