Our January event was a visit to the Turner shortlist at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry. The shortlist, all installations produced by collectives on the theme of ‘difference’ were fascinating, thought-provoking and intriguing. The twelve attendees wandered around the installations – and other exhibitions in the gallery – for a couple of hours and we then met for lunch in the café where the conversation was wide-ranging, interesting and, as always, entertaining. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come out on a cold, rainy day in January.
The Midlands Network is going to visit the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Jordan Wl, Coventry CV1 5QP to see the Turner Shortlist 2021.
10:30am – Meet outside the Art Gallery
10:45am – Go into the Exhibition
12:00pm – Have lunch in the café
This is the first time a shortlist has consisted entirely of artist collectives and we expect it to be an interesting, thought-provoking visit. Catch it before it closes on 12 January.
