Symposium: The Best is Not Too Good for You
Thursday 15 May, 2 – 6pm
Zilkha Auditorium, Whitechapel Gallery
How do we ascribe value and meaning to objects in our everyday lives? Taking applied arts as a point of departure, speakers examine the politics at play between the handmade and the industrially produced, and the way in which the idea of uniqueness impacts on what something might be worth. Featuring artists Matthew Darbyshire, Paul Scott, art historian Tanya Harrod, and curators Ingrid Swenson and Sarah Shalgosky.
