The Coronavirus outbreak continues to affect our plans.

Dear Members,

In February we had our second Zoom lecture, which again appears to have been a great success, judging by the feedback. A link to the next one will be put here on the day of the lecture. The lecture will take place at 2.30 p.m. on the Wednesday 10th March, see below: 

10th March 2021

Lecturer: Rosalind Whyte

Antony Gormley: A Body of Work (postponed from May 2020)

Antony Gormley’s career spans nearly 40 years, during which time he has made sculpture that explores the relationship of the human body to space, often using his own body as his starting point. His work has been shown throughout the world, in galleries including the Tate in London and the Hermitage in St Petersburg, but is also often on open display, as public art, such as Another Place at Crosby Beach, near Liverpool. As well as works that he is well known for, like the iconic Angel of the North, this lecture will look at some of his earlier and less well-known works, to give an overall view of the development of his work across his whole career, up to the present time.

The current programme and the articles from September to December 2020 can downloaded from the Programme 2020-2021 page.
