Watch a recording of curators Laurie Britton Newell and George Vasey as they discuss the making and remaking of ‘Joy’ and ‘Tranquillity’, two exhibitions that form part of the ‘On Happiness’ season.
In this honest and illuminating online event, the curators reflect on what they have learned about the elusive subject of happiness as part of this journey and how they hope the themes of the exhibits will resonate with visitors.
Laurie and George audio-describe a short walk-through film of the ‘Joy’ and ‘Tranquillity’ exhibitions. They then discuss their experiences of pausing and starting the exhibition work in response to the cultural and political urgencies surfaced by the Covid-19 pandemic. The speakers respond to audience questions during the final 20 minutes.
‘Joy’ and ‘Tranquillity’ are open 15 July 2021–9 January 2022.
