The New English Landscape – Ken Worpole in conversation with Gareth Evans & Rachel Lichtenstein
Ken will argue for a more radical aesthetic when discussing what landscape means today to people’s sense of place and self – in this case focusing on the troubled territory of the Thames estuary and the estuaries and mudflats of East Anglia. He discusses these issues with poet and curator, Gareth Evans, and historian, Rachel Lichtenstein, who is also writing about the Thames. A series of photographs by Jason Orton will be projected during the evening.
Wednesday, 4 December 2013 – 7pm
