Louisa Fairclough will be in conversation with critic, curator and poet Cherry Smyth at the Contemporary Art Society on 21 February.

The Contemporary Art Society is delighted to present Bore Song (2011), a moving-image work by British artist Louisa Fairclough, which it recently donated to Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum. The piece relates to a spectacular Gloucestershire phenomenon — the Severn Bore, a large tidal wave that surges up the River Severn. The film is presented together with a selection of related on-going drawings from the Ground Truth project.
