Prior to the opening of John Walter's exhibition at Hardwick Gallery, The Zany Capsid, there will be a Hospitality Masterclass given by John Walter. For Walter, hospitality within his artistic practice is not an end in itself, rather it functions as a conduit to discussion about his work.
At the Masterclass there will be a presentation and discussion around Sianne Ngai's ideas, specifically The Zany Science, and you will trained as a host in the art of serving drinks and talking about the ideas presented in the exhibition. We will be inventing characters and creating costumes to inhabit at the opening - please bring along an old piece of clothing to customise.
