Heather Phillipson Reading Group

Unit 8 Rich Estate, London, London, United Kingdom

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 18:30 to 20:00

An informal session providing an opportunity to discuss themes raised in the work of Heather Phillipson, our current ‘Annotations’ artist in residence and winner of the Trafalgar Square Fourth Plinth commission for 2020.

This reading group will be led by Heather Phillipson, who has selected three short texts to use as a starting point for a discussion around irreverence as riposte and disruption. As Bell Hooks said, ‘there can be no meaningful revolution without humour.’

The short texts include Mary Ruefle’s essay Kangaroo Beach, Leonora Carrington’s manifesto Jezzamathatics, or Introduction to the Wonderful Process of Painting, and Joanna Ruocco’s short story Multi-Course Small Plates, Craft Lofts, Prix Fixe.

Texts will be emailed to all ticket holders in advance of the evening.
