A whistle-stop tour of art that fools, surprises and amuses.
There is a universal delight in being deceived. In this lecture, the audience is taken on a whistle-stop tour of art that fools, surprises and amuses. Beginning and ending with the Belgian Surrealist René Magritte, it encompasses Trompe L'eoil, Banksy, Bridget Riley, Arcimboldo and Escher, to name but a few. Hold on to your seats and get ready to be visually fried!
Admission to this lecture - at either 11:20 or 13:20 - will be by numbered ticket only.
Following the afternoon presentation we will be holding our AGM at 15:00.
