TWR x Hauser and Wirth: Abstraction and Disruption

19 November / 18.30-20.00 / RSVP via Eventbrite

 

Our third event in collaboration with Hauser & Wirth takes place alongside Mark Bradford’s current exhibition, Cerberus. Hear from a panel of writers and critics who explore the potential for abstraction to disrupt and create new forms of expression, across visual and literary work.

 

Isobel Harbison is an art critic based in London. Her first book, Performing Image (MIT Press) was released in April 2019.

 

Adam Thirlwell has written three novels, Politics, The Escape, and Lurid & Cute; edited a project with international novelists called Multiples; and, most recently, wrote and directed a short film called Utopia. His work is translated into 30 languages.

 

Aurella Yussuf is a writer, curator and art historian specialising in Africa and the African Diaspora. She is a founding member of interdisciplinary research collective Thick/er Black Lines.
