About

Francesco Manacorda / Joanna Moorhead / Mathew Holmes / Dr. Joanna Pawlik / Umberto Bellardi Ricci / George Charman / Dr. David Stent / Ingrid Gonzalez / Conservation of Books and Library Materials  at West Dean College

This event will consider the impact of Mexico upon the life and work of West Dean College founder, Edward James, from his earliest visits to the country in 1944, until his death forty years later. Papers from a variety of guest speakers will address a range of subjects, including the creation and impact of ‘Las Pozas’, Xilitla, to James’s enduring friendships with other artists associated with Mexico, such as Leonora Carrington. The event will also consider activities preceding James’s presence in Mexico, proposing precursors and associations for his later work. A publication relating to the theme of the event will be launched after the symposium.

This event is free but booking is essential. For more details, please contact:
