Matthew Day Jackson will be in conversation with Tom Morton, writer, independent curator and contributing editor for frieze, on the occasion of his exhibition, ‘Still Life and the Reclining Nude’. Through two new bodies of work, Jackson critiques conventional genres, their cultural placement and his own authorship. The talk will be an opportunity to gain a unique insight into Jackson’s interdisciplinary approach that delves into many aspects of human experience.
