POSTPONED Honestly Speaking: Speaking Honestly


event Details

Please note: This event has been postponed.

We thank you for your understanding of these changes, which are made for the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers.

A poet, a performance artist and an art critic walk into an exhibition - it's Carrie Rudzinski, Sarita Das and Lucinda Bennett speaking honestly. These three contemporary voices provide fresh interpretation as they untangle, interrogate and vivify the works in our new exhibition Honestly Speaking: the Word, the Body and the Internet. With drinks and exclusive after-hours viewing, this night of activation is not to be missed.

Complimentary refreshments served, more details to follow.
