Sat 28 Oct, 2 – 4pm

To coincide with Duncan Higgins’ Open Residency, Higgins and David McLeavy (Director of Bloc Projects), will host an informal artist talk in which they will be discussing the work and it’s display at a particularly poignant moment half way through the residency.

The Bloc Projects Open Residency provides audiences with a unique perspective on how artists work. By turning the gallery space into a working studio and inviting the public to engage in open conversation, the Open Residency programme aims to break down the formal barriers between artist and audience.
