Hestercombe Gallery Event: Where Function Ends Symposium - 11th October 2019
This half-day symposium will explore in more detail the life and work of Sir Edwin Lutyens and the ways in which artists Alex Hartley, Liz Nicol and Oliver Sutherland responded to Lutyens and his work at Hestercombe in their projects for the current exhibition at Hestercombe Gallery. Speakers will include Lutyens expert Charles Hind, Chief Curator of Drawings at the Royal Institute of British Architects, Niall Hobhouse of Drawing Matter, exhibiting artists Alex Hartley, Liz Nicol and Oliver Sutherland and exhibition curator Kate Best. We will also be joined by special guest artist Neville Gabie, who will be launching ‘Outfield’, a Hestercombe Cricket Ground proposition.
