Online event: “Death is the last great taboo’’
Tuesday 22 February, 1pm – 3pm
With artist Julian Stair
FREE. Online event
Join us for a discussion-based forum for professionals working in end of life care, artists and students where we will look at how artistic practice can help develop a new, expressive language to both mediate loss and celebrate life, and together explore ways that the Sainsbury Centre can be used as a positive and compassionate space for the community.
This online event is in connection with Julian Stair‘s upcoming exhibition Art, Death and Afterlife at the Sainsbury Centre in Autumn, which will explore humanity’s reliance on art as a way to mediate and transcend the uncertainty of death. The display will feature funerary objects and historical artifacts selected from the Sainsbury Centre collection alongside Stair’s contemporary responses to a global pandemic that has seen the loss of 5.5 million people.
