Lucy is an artist whose work addresses social and ecological challenges through making and collaboration. She uses a wide range of media including drawing, sculpture and performance to visualise relationships between the body and our natural and urban environments. Since 2005, she has collaborated with the artist Jorge Orta to co-author Lucy+Jorge Orta. Their long-term projects investigate global food chains, water scarcity and pollution and the effects of climate change and migration.

Wed 26 May, 5 – 6:30pm: Rory Pilgrim
