A descriptive tour and practical workshop as part of the current exhibition The Green Man by Lucy Skaer.

An exploration and reanimation of the desire to collect, for this exhibition Skaer has selected items from the collections of the University of Edinburgh and invited fellow artists to inhabit the galleries alongside her.

Throughout her practice, Skaer mines and manipulates pre-existing imagery—from art, history, and from her own oeuvre and personal history—transforming and destabilizing relationships between materials and meanings.

Participants will be taken on a guided tour of the exhibition led by Juliana Capes before a chance to discuss and respond to the themes in a workshop after lunch.
