Study Afternoon - Art into Life

8 December / 1-4pm / £8/£6 concessions / Sainsbury Centre Studio

This study afternoon will explore how contemporary artists and thinkers are engaging with the everyday, and how social and political ideas are communicated though art, architecture and design.

A panel of speakers including artist Katie Schwab, who works across ceramics, furniture and textiles to explore ideas of community and identity; Ben Highmore, Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex and author of The Great Indoors: At Home in the Modern British House, and Noel Douglas, an artist interested in the creative use of graphics and art in social movements, will reflect on how their practice and research relates to everyday life.
