Master Class: Damien Roach
An artist-led professional development programme for eight UK-based, early-career artists, Master Class includes talks given by guest tutors, which are open to the public.
From installations to AI, Damien Roach explores his expansive and accomplished practice, which challenges us to rethink the everyday visual forms and structures that surround us. Roach’s sculptures, projections and installations challenge perception and ask the viewer to look at the world in a different way. Roach prompts this re-examination through subtle and sometimes barely noticeable alterations to objects, images and environments.
Doors open from 6:30pm. Talk from 7pm-8:30pm.
