Event description

Description

Join this year’s Invited Artist for HOUSE Biennial, sculptor Laura Ford, who will discuss what inspired her installation A King’s Appetite at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. The event will begin in the Museum Lab, where HOUSE Biennial Curator Celia Davies will introduce the artist. Laura will be joined by Royal Pavilion curator Alexandra Loske, who will provide a brief historical background to Georgian caricatures and the story of the first living giraffe in England, which was a gift to King George from the Pasha of Egypt in 1827. Both George and his giraffe became prime targets for political cartoonists in the late 1820s and died within 9 months of each other. Afterwards we will move into the main gallery, where Laura and Alexandra will be talking about the installation and respond to any questions.
