Blue Monkey Network: In the footsteps of Babs
Tickets £5.00/ Free for BMN Members. Available on the door.
Thursday 17 August
Nikki Davidson-Bowman, Snuggling, from the Tangled Thread series, 2023
Join Blue Monkey Network member and artist Nikki Davidson-Bowman for a talk inspired by Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life and themes from the symposium (M)otherhood at Tate St Ives which hosted the exhibition before it came to Towner Eastbourne.
Nikki will take us on a subjective meander through holes, threads, life & art as a mother, considering how motherhood may or may not impact practice.
The talk and discussion will take place in Studio 3 on the middle floor (near the toilets). Please allow time to check in with Kath before the event starts.
