While the exhibition looks playful enough, it is underpinned by some very serious political as well as sinister concerns.

Poster Spaces for Leisure Artist Talk

Francesca Mataraga will discuss her installation Spaces For Leisure over a cup of tea at 2.00pm Saturday 14 June.  This installation examines the table as a communal space and is paired with a series of wall drawings that are responsive to the adjoining jewellery workshop, SquarePeg Studios.  Attention visionary architects: this work would look brilliant in any corporate or apartment foyer or boardroom!
