Labour, Politics, Place & Family | Talks
Juncture's careful focus naturally invites conversation of and between works. This is fortified by a series of hosted discussions in an experimental format that combines a panel talk, Lois Weaver's Long Table, and Chisenhale Dance Space's Coffee Mornings, originally designed by this year's Juncture curator, Gillie Kleiman.Each talk departs from a singular concept arising through the curatorial process.LabourFriday 28 October3.00pm - 5.00pmwith Nicola Conibere, immigrants and animals, Toby Lloyd & Andrew WilsonWho is or isn't working in these works?
