Sound Bites is a series of informal, yet informative, public talks given by the Hauser & Wirth Somerset Invigilator team. Each talk will run for 15 minutes and focus on a single work in current exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’.
On the days that talks will take place, please check the blackboard at Front Desk for information on the speaker’s name, time and the artwork being spoken about. Details about forthcoming Sound Bites will also be listed below in the week prior. Outside of the listed times, please feel free to ‘ask anytime’ about the works on show from the Invigilator team.
