Vegetarian Shabbat Chanukah lunch with artist and member, Jyll Bradley, in conversation with art historian, Keziah Goudsmit

8th December 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

£10 – £21

As it is the festival of lights, Jyll will be discussing her work with ‘light’.

Jyll Bradley’s installations, drawings and sculptures draw upon the potential of light as both metaphor and material. Her most recent work reflects her interest in the structures we build to capture light for plant growth. ‘Dutch/Light (for Agneta Block)’ 2017, at Turner Contemporary, Margate, drew upon early glasshouse technology, whilst ‘Green/Light (for M.R’) 2014, commissioned for Folkestone Triennial was based upon traditional hop garden design. Jyll will be in conversation with Keziah Goudsmit, Manager, Frieze Studios. N.B. There will be no slide show, but plenty of exciting visual material.
