In autumn 2018, Canterbury Cathedral will be hosting ‘Remember Me?!’, an exhibition of work to mark the centenary of the Armistice.
The work is being produced by the Cathedral’s current Artist in Residence, Dawn Cole, who has been using Canterbury Cathedral Archives as the starting point for a new body of work which explores the act of Remembrance. This event is your opportunity to meet the artist, view her research and see some of the pieces in progress ahead of the exhibition to be held in autumn 2018.
At this Meet the Artist session, Dawn will be:
- Talking about her experiences.
- Showing of the inspirational items she has discovered in the Archives.
- Exhibiting some of the work she is in the process of creating.
- Explaining how the residency connects to many of her other projects.
