To celebrate the launch of the book that accompanies this exhibition, join us for an exclusive in-conversation with sculptor and exhibition curator Olivia Bax, art critic Sam Cornish, sculptor John Summers and art historian James Fisher.

Up for discussion amongst other things are: How and why could a sculpture be funny? How did sculpture help painter John Hoyland rethink the relationship between his canvas and the world?
