Fragile Defence: a Specialist Tour
17 September 13:00 - 13:45
Join Vanessa Murrell (Writer, Curator, Artivist) for an informal walk through Izaak Brand’s “Fragile Defence” solo exhibition with the Fitzrovia Chapel. It will highlight the artist’s newly made installation which combines art and Breaking culture. As part of the guided experience, Murrell will engage in a casual conversation with the artist about the process of producing the work. After we complete the exhibition tour, there will be time for questions and discussion.
“With each piece, Brandt weaves a tapestry of emotions, revealing that courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to confront our fragility and emerge stronger.”
This event is free. Booking is not necessary but highly recommended. No prior knowledge of contemporary art is required.
