Jeremy Deller - Sunday 4 May, 2pm, John Wesley’s Chapel, Bristol

In the first of this series of events Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller challenges where, when and how art takes place. Over the past two decades, his artworks and projects have sparked unexpected conversations, and collaborations, inspired by English history of the recent past, from his acclaimed reenactment of the miner's strike in 2001 to his stagings of conversations about Iraq accompanied by the burnt remains of a bombed out car in the US.

To mark his exhibition, English Magic, at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and the launch of a new national programme about challenging forms of Public Art, Bristol art producers Situations have invited Deller to give a Sunday lecture at the historic John Wesley's Chapel in conversation with Director, Claire Doherty as part of the new Bristol Art Weekender celebrations.

Price: £4.00 (£2:50 concessions) for tickets and more information please click here.
