Title: 'Walking the Skyline is Always Changing'
Artist and poet Alec Finlay reflects on how the poetic memory and cultural viewing of the field trip can release public sculpture from its weighty burden and on how ecological considerations can re-address the way artists approach our public landscape.
The talk will be informal and make reference to the work of his parents Sue and Ian Hamilton Finlay, other associated artists and poetry.
