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 works as “unforgettable experiences that both provoke and delight.”
Artists frame and represent the world in a unique way, shaping how we understand and make sense of our surroundings. The DACS Annual Lectures seek to explore the unique perspectives of some of the UK’s most important contemporary artists. This year, we invite you to hear Anthea Hamilton speak at A Space for Thought, Monday 24 September at 7pm, at The Art Worker’s Guild.
