Join us for a special evening celebrating the opening of the exhibition Peter Kennard: Archive of Dissent.

Marking 50 years of powerful and influential image-making bridging art and politics, the programme includes artist Peter Kennard in conversation with artist and curator Harris Elliott, poetry readings by playwright, poet, novelist and spoken word artist Kae Tempest, and two sets of Moroccan-inspired music by the collective Arfoud Brothers & Sisters.
