In Conversation: Making, Collecting and Curating Soldier Art

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


From a tiny match-box house to full-scale quilts, the objects on display in Created in Conflict reveal how, in times of war, making has often been an act of survival – both practically and emotionally. Join exhibition curator Professor Holly Furneaux, ceramic artist Dr. Christopher McHugh, collector James Gordon Cumming and military veterans in conversation about the complex legacies of these unique objects. The talk takes place in The Studio and tickets include entry to the exhibition.
