In autumn 2015, we are showing the exhibition Risk. Join us for an informal discussion about the exhibition, using practical philosophy, and share your response to works in the exhibition. The discussion will help us plan how we engage visitors with this exhibition.

The exhibition proposes risk as an important element of key artistic moments during the last century, which continues to feature in contemporary practice. Risk has played a role in Abstract Expressionist painting, post-minimal sculpture and “process” art, performance art, and work made in the context of and responding to political conditions around the world, among other practices.

Featuring works from the twentieth-century to the present day, the exhibition will bring together artworks and artistic practices that engaged directly with risk exploring the subject through a range of themes: the intersection between risk and chance; the artist at risk; the contemporary landscape of risk; materials and processes and exposure and self-revelation.

Among the artists presented in the exhibition are Marina Abramovic, Francis Alÿs, Marcel Duchamp, Simon Faithfull, Gerhard Richter, JMW Turner and performances by Jasmin Vardimon Company.
