Festival of the Not: Louwrien Wijers Talk

Fri 18 January // 18:00 / Cinema

Tickets: (Free and open to all)

Festival of the Not is proud to welcome artist Louwrien Wijers for the first time to an audience in the UK. This talk will focus upon Wijers' astounding practice to date.

Wijers worked closely with Joseph Beuys through the 1970s - 80s which informs her current work – she uses 'conversation as sculpture' bringing people together to discuss the world's most pressing issues. 

In 1990 she organised the discussion series Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy (1990) which featured notable speakers Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Dalai Lama, David Bohm, Stanislav Menshikov and many more.
