Wed 13 May & Wed 27 May, 11.30 am.

Throughout the month of May you are invited to participate in a pop-up reading group led by artist Rosie O’Reilly. In response to our current exhibition, The Sea Around Us (see our online catalogue),  Rosie invites the group to read up to four chosen texts ranging from Donna Haraway, Timothy Morton’s essay on Environmentalism to the poetry of Etel Adnan, as well as O’Reilly’s own work Octopolis, published in Winter Pages, 2019. These texts, available to download below, will be explored through two informal on-line discussions on Wednesdays 13th and 27th May. As places are limited early booking is advised.

To be held via Zoom. You will be invited via the email address you use during booking.
