Lecture Programme


Lectures at the Lit & Phil

These talks are organised by the Lit & Phil (you don't need to be a member in order to attend any of their public events), and tickets cost £4 per talk, from the Lit & Phil Library, 23 Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE, in person or over the phone (0191) 232 0192. It is advisable to book seats in advance; if you reserve a ticket and are subsequently unable to attend, please let us know as we often have a waiting list.

The Art of David Bomberg

Coming to the Laing in February 2018 is the first significant exhibition of David Bomberg's work in more than a decade. The exhibition will mark the 60th anniversary of the artist's death and will be co-curated by Ben Uri Gallery, Pallant House Gallery and the Laing Art Gallery.

Gail-Nina offers a special lecture, to coincide with the exhibition, on Wednesday 28th February at 6.00 pm (tickets £4).

Meanwhile, Gail-Nina continues her series of triads of art lectures. As with her previous sets of three talks examining different aspects of a movement or theme in art, each one stands alone as an independent lecture, so don't worry if you can only attend one or two.
