  • FPG Reading Salon:
    Ali Smith and
    Virginia Woolf
  • 4 June 2015, 7.00pm
  • FPG Project Space

The Reading Salon meets for informal discussion, encouraging both a critical engagement with contemporary art and an open space for debate and learning.

'The sun had not yet risen. The sea was indistinguishable from the sky, except that the sea was slightly creased as if a cloth had wrinkles in it.'

To coincide with Bridget Smith's exhibition 'If You Want To Talk About Light You Have To Talk About Waves', the artist has chosen a section from Ali Smith's Artful (2012), alongside a section from Virginia Woolf's The Waves (1931).

The salon will discuss these excerpts using the modality of waves, and how they provide a structure for talking about form and materiality.
