BOOK TALK 15 MARCH 2023: Revisiting Modern British Art

Revisiting Modern British Art: Ravilious and Towner’s Collection
6.00pm to 8.00pm, £15/ £13 Concessions/ Towner Members
Wednesday 15 March

Join the Towner Gallery for a thought-provoking panel discussion with Ravilious-specialist James Russell, director of the Ingram Collection Jo Baring and Towner’s Head of Exhibitions and Collection Sara Cooper to discuss how specific artists, such as Eric Ravilious, provide focal points for collections.

The event will celebrate the new publication Revisiting Modern British Art, edited by Jo Baring with a text by James Russell. The talk coincides with our current exhibitions The Living Collection and Unseen, which include works by Ravilious and Paul Nash – both featured in the publication, along with Eileen Agar, Vanessa Bell, Francis Bacon, Barbara Hepworth, Margaret Mellis, Richard Hamilton and Kim Lim.

The discussion will take place from 6.00pm to 6.45pm, after which there will be 15 minutes for an audience Q&A.

The event will be followed by a book signing and the publication will be available to buy on the night for ticket holders at 20% off.

If you would like to visit the exhibitions, the galleries will remain open for ticket holders until 6pm that evening.
