Join Selina Thompson in the Reading Room, Wellcome Collection, for a public conversation on the politics of food with writer, journalist and activist Jack Monroe. Selina is in residence at the Reading Room for the week of the event, exploring the resources and talking to experts and visitors.
This event is FREE and no booking is required. Simply gather in the Reading Room on Thursday 17 November at 4pm.
LADA has curated four week-long artist’s residencies in the Wellcome Collection’s wonderful Reading Room.
Each artist will work with a specific theme within the Reading Room, exploring the materials and resources held in the collection in relation to their own practice and research, and leading to public ‘performances’ of their findings and conversations with invited experts.
The Residents are Selina Thompson on Food, Joshua Sofaer on Face, Stacy Makishi on Faith, and Tim Bromage on Alchemy.
