Join curators Eamonn Maxwell, Nick Kaplony and Medeia Cohan for our monthly artist’s group chat. These casual sessions are an opportunity for you to share your practice with a group of supportive, yet frank peers, for encouragement and honest advice over a few drinks.
Guests are welcomed to share their work and experience or just sit back and listen. This event is not recorded and observes Chatham House rules.
