Lindsey Mendick in conversation with Charlotte Flint
This is a live online event. Please book for more details. Information on how to join will be sent out ahead of the event.
Join artist Lindsey Mendick and Curatorial Assistant Charlotte Flint for a discussion about the role of art making as a form of relief, catharsis and comfort.
The discussion will explore Mendick’s own artistic practice and the work of Laure Pigeon (1882-1965), Madge Gill (1882-1961) and Aloïse (1886-1964), three female Art Brut artists, whose work is on display in the exhibition.
This event has been programmed to coincide with Jean Dubuffet: Brutal Beauty, an exhibition celebrating French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), one of the most singular and provocative voices in postwar modern art.
