Join us for a talk on the current Art at the ARB exhibition ‘Travelling Companions‘ at the Alison Richard Building.

Exhibition curator Ro Spankie will interview artists Fay Ballard and Judy Goldhill on their exhibition, and you will be able to enjoy artworks from the exhibition online. There will be time for questions at the end of the event.

‘Travelling Companions’ explores personal belongings as ‘travelling companions to life’ which unlock thoughts, feelings and memories, and the notion of the skies and stars as travelling companions to explorers navigating their passage across the globe.

The exhibition has re-opened and will run until 3 December 2021 and is open on weekdays from 9am – 7pm.
