The New Art Gallery Walsall are holding a pair of talks on Saturday 13th November. The first, “Meet Our Architects”, is part of their Tenth birthday celebrations. One of the architects of the gallery, Peter St. John, will discuss the design and construction of the building from 1-2 p.m.
Fierce Earth are proud to have acted as consultants in the planning of the gallery, and maintained their early web presence in 1998/99 including a contruction webcam, showing our pioneering use of digital media in the creative sector. This work evolved into projects such as myfiercefestival in 2008 and Metapod Connect.
The second talk, from 3-4.30 p.m., is part of the Art of Ideas III programme of events around collecting and curating art. Head of Collections at Walsall Jo Digger and Director of the Hales Gallery Paul Hedges will be discussing the relationship between artists, dealers and collectors. This talk is organised by Art & Business.
Both talks are free, no booking required.
