DACS is delighted to be hosting its inaugural Annual Lecture, A Space For Thought, with British artist Anthea Hamilton.
Tate Britain's director Alex Farquharson describes Anthea's work as a "unique contribution to British and international art" and notes her " visually playful and thoughtful works".
The Annual Lecture gives a unbiased platform for artists. Artists frame and represent the world in unique way and are often marginalised because they are thinking differently. The volatility, vulnerability and precariousness of being an artist in all its idiosyncrasies is something that DACS feels should be shared with an audience.
