BEAR & RAGGED STAFF: IDEAS OF THE RURAL

From 14-17 November we bring together a group of artists based in or with deep connections to rural Warwickshire to reflect upon, and respond to, the impact Conceptual Art has had since Art & Language formed and based their collective practice in the county in the late 60s and 70s.

On Saturday 17 November, we also hold a seminar and workshop exploring the role critical thinking has played in artistic practices which take place away from cities.
