Listen Again: Daphne Wright & Phyllida Barlow in Conversation

Catch up with last weeks' In Conversation with Daphne Wright and Phyllida Barlow as they discuss their approaches to sculpture and more.


"I feel priviledged to be in a space listening to two artists and most importantly mothers talking about the influence of the domestic on their work. It's a significant moment."


Phyllida Barlow is one of the most significant artists working in the UK today. She is best known for her large-scale abstract assemblages, created out of inexpensive materials such as plywood, cardboard and polystyrene, and painted in bright, industrial colours. Through her long teaching career, she has influenced a generation of younger artists, including Rachel Whiteread and Angela De La Cruz. She received a CBE for her services to the arts in 2015; will represent Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2017; and is one of four artists nominated for the inaugural Hepworth Prize, the first major British prize for sculpture.

Daphne Wright’s major solo exhibition Emotional Archaeology remians at Arnolfini until 31 December.
