This event is part of Lunchtime Responses: a series of events where members of the Towner team invite you to hear new perspectives, unique takes and personal stories about the varied works on display at the gallery.
Join Towner staff member Terry Henson for a 20-minute close discussion about the artwork Box of Heads by the Brazilian artist and printmaker Ana Maria Pacheco.
Expect insights into some of the religious narratives within the work with consideration for how Ana Maria Pacheco presents themes of myth, fantasy and the darker side of humanity.
During the discussion you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your own thoughts.
This is a drop-in, free event for all.
Meet inside Gallery 1 on the first floor.
Terry works at Towner Eastbourne and is an Art Store Guide. She is the organiser and facilitator of the Open Ended Project (a project for people with memory loss and their carers). Her interests are in early to mid-20th century British and European Art, particularly the Bloomsbury artists, including the Berwick Church murals.
We have a budget available to make this event as accessible as possible – this can include interpretation services or other access needs we can meet to enable you to participate.
If you require access arrangements, please email email@example.com two weeks before the event date so that we can book a service if needed.
