Talk: Everyone’s a Collector, 2pm
All of us gather things as we go through life and these objects acquire great significance and meaning. Join Dr Louise Purbrick – Researcher in material & visual culture and Principal Lecturer in the History of Art & Design at the University of Brighton – to explore our relationship with the objects we keep and value.
This is an exclusive talk relating to the themes and issues touched on by Tomoko Takahashi’s extremely popular exhibition Introspecive Retrospective, now on at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Tickets £5. Places limited, please call the box office on 01424 229 111 to book or you can book online here.
…and what a fantastic day it was! Approaching the De La Warr Pavilion in all its splendour on a sunny Saturday, it was a truely spine-tingling sight to see the sun terrace teeming with people enjoying DJ NIKKI BEATNIK’s chilled-out tunes and heartily discussing Tomoko Takahashi’s exhibition with broad smiles. People meandered round the Antony Gormley sculptures on the roof terrace and waved to friends and family dancing and chatting below. Others chilled out on deck chairs bathed in sunshine, a cold drink in hand. An inspiring exhibition celebrated in beautiful informal surroundings – a perfect summer day all in all.
“What a fantastic vibe this afternoon…..excellent to dance to the amazing tunes in the wonderful sunshine”
“What an amazing afternoon. Thank you to Tomoko, Nikki and the event organisers. Please do it again sometime!”
Pics of the event will be uploaded shortly. Please put up your pics too!
