Marcus Harvey’s work undoubtedly provokes a response, being rich in political, social and artistic references.


Sarah will help to unpick some of these references in this two-hour informal workshop, beginning with a short talk introducing the artist and examining some of the themes found in his work before moving into the galleries to analyse the pieces in more depth. 

You will have time to explore the exhibition on your own or in small groups and to gather your thoughts before coming back together to discuss selected works in more detail. It should be a stimulating discussion!

Sarah Ciacci studied Art History at University College London (BA and MA), and is an art gallery educator, university lecturer in art history at Richmond University and a Blue Badge Guide for London, specialising in Art, Museums and Galleries.

She gives regular tours at the National Portrait Gallery and Dulwich Picture Gallery. Sarah’s enduring interest is in making art accessible, fun and thought provoking for everyone. 

This workshop is suitable for over 16s. No art historical knowledge needed.

Booking is essential as places are limited. To book, please call 01424 728377 during gallery opening hours.

As part of the Root 1066 Festival, Jerwood Gallery is hosting a series of subsidised creative events to compliment Marcus Harvey: Inselaffe, including children’s £1.50 workshops.
