The Hepworth Wakefield and Wolverhampton Art Gallery, in association with Film and Video Umbrella, were winners of the 2010 Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for Museums for their proposal with artist Luke Fowler. The starting point for Fowler’s research and new film work are the writings and rarely-seen archive materials from the radical socialists Edward Palmer Thompson, Raymond Williams and Richard Hoggart.

Join Frances Guy (Head of Collections and Exhibitions, The Hepworth Wakefield) and Lucy Byatt (Head of National Programme, Contemporary Art Society) for a talk about Fowler’s new film and the Annual Museums Award.

This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North West. Membership costs £50 per year / £25 for students.
