1. Subscriber only events

An Evening with Doug Fishbone
Thursday 21 January 6pm-7.30pm

International artist and art educator Doug Fishbone will share his experiences of life in the trenches of the art world over the past 20 years. Noted for his engaging and highly unlikely projects - from piling 30,000 bananas in Trafalgar Square, acting the lead role in a low-budget Ghanaian melodrama, to designing a crazy golf course at the Venice Biennale - Fishbone works in a wide range of media to present an amusing critique of contemporary life, prompting one critic to call him a "stand-up conceptual artist."

He will share insight from his broad experience in navigating the art world and is very open to any kind of questions.

Subscribers will be contacted by email and provided with the required Zoom meeting ID and passcode prior to this event.
