Meet other early career artists and young people interested in contemporary art at our latest Young Creatives Night. Facilitated by alumni of our youth collective Duchamp & Sons, these nights are an informal space for young creatives to connect, hear from contemporary artists, and share thoughts on art, life in the creative sector, and more.
At our February night we’ll be joined by artist and recent East London Art Prize Runner up Cora Sehgal Cuthbert who will be sharing more about her practice and taking part in a Q+A session.
These nights are open to Duchamp & Sons Alumni and any creatives aged around 21-28.
Find out more about our main Youth Programme for 15-24s and our youth collective Duchamp & Sons here.
Please email Amelia Oakley, Curator: Youth Programmes on email@example.com if you have any questions or access requirements you would like to discuss ahead of this event.
Cora Sehgal Cuthbert is a multidisciplinary artist based in London. Her work explores the intersections between the personal, the cultural, and a universal spirituality/humanity. Through this, Cora aims to expand her own and the audience’s worldview, to encourage the sharing of stories, and to encourage the recognition of the beauty and love within our own everyday lives. Specific themes Cora has recently explored include ideas of home, immigration, faith, grief, desire and disability.
