Join us at Purdy Hicks Gallery to meet the artist Claire Kerr at a preview of 'What Else Do I Believe in?' (Patti Smith, M Train).
Claire explains, "In some sense, making a painting or a poem is the process of imposing the imagination on the world - in Wallace Stevens's words, 'the imagination pressing back against the pressure of reality'. These paintings are explorations of things, situations and stories in which real, imagined and wished-for significance are on equal terms. They celebrate the way the fanciful and the far-fetched can have a resonance."
She will be joined in conversation with renowned author Hisham Matar whose debut novel "In the Country of Men" was shortlisted for the 2006 Man Booker Prize.
