Access Information


This special event features Theaster Gates reflecting on his new exhibition, A Clay Sermon, in which his transformation of clay – from geological substance into utilitarian and artistic material – stands as a powerful metaphor for his socially-engaged work and wider artistic practice. 

In partnership with the V&A. Supported by the Stanley Picker Trust. 

This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Earth / Matter.
