Join us for a Wednesday Walkthrough – a gallery tour where artists, experts, researchers, and academics give short talks in their field of expertise relating to the concepts explored in our exhibition.

In this Walkthrough Charlie Pratley will give a talk around the themes of our current exhibition Hollow Earth: Art, Caves & the Subterranean Imaginary. Charlie’s current research is in extraction culture, considering our relationship with the Earth and its role as an archive, the layers of which are exposed and disordered as humans tunnel through the ground and mine resources. We will spend some time looking at the exhibition before reconvening for a group discussion about the themes and imagery found in the gallery.
