Inspired by The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London, which explores the experiences and friendships French artists developed with their British counterparts between 1870 and 1904, this salon-style discussion features contemporary French artists currently based in London.

How much does a city shape an artist’s work? What inspirations and challenges does London provide? How might Brexit change cultural relations in the future?

Contributors include the acclaimed French artists Marguerite Humeau, whose work currently appears in the Art Now display at Tate Britain, and Clarisse d’Arcimoles, whose photography and performances engage with forms of nostalgia in British culture. The discussion is chaired by Sam Thorne, Director of Nottingham Contemporary.

The talk will take place outside of the exhibition but an option is available to attend a private view following the talk for £22 (£17 concessions). This option is now bookable by phone and will be online shortly.
