Description

Saturday 28 September, 3-4.30pm

To coincide with her solo exhibition at Vane, ‘A Foul and Awesome Display’, Kirsty Harris will talk about her work with Dr Daniel Barnes, philosopher, critic and curator.

Kirsty Harris’s paintings of nuclear bomb tests are vast and confrontational, depicting moments of manufactured violence that radically disrupt the landscape.

Barnes has curated a number of group and solo exhibitions, including ‘Strange Love’ in 2018 featuring Kirsty Harris, and he has written widely on art and aesthetics. His book, The Value Industry, exploring the relationship between art and money, is available now from Amazon.

The talk is free but places are limited. Please contact the gallery to book a place at events@vane.org.uk or 0191 261 8281.
