Ken Loach and George Shaw In Conversation
Mar 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Ken Loach and George Shaw In Conversation @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom

Join acclaimed director and activist Ken Loach in conversation with Holburne-exhibiting artist and Turner-prize nominee George Shaw as they talk about the links between their works. Best-known for his films Kes (1969), I, Daniel Blake (2016) and The Wind that Shakes the Barley (2006), and his treatment of social issues such as homelessness, poverty and labour rights, Loach’s work has inspired Shaw, whose retrospective at the Holburne focusses on the suburban Tile Hill council estate where he grew up. Following a discussion of these themes, the audience will be invited to join in the conversation.
