Matthew Finn in conversation with Rodrigo Orrantia
Saturday 26th November: 3.30 – 5.00pm
Tickets: £5 per person / £3.50 for students
Francesca Maffeo Gallery introduces Matthew Finn as a new gallery artist and will be hosting an ‘in conversation’ event to present his work to the gallery print room and mark the occasion.
Matthew Finn is the 2015 recipient of the Jerwood/Photoworks award for his ‘Mother’ project, whom he has photographed for the past 30 years. Finn works with subjects whom are important in his life, he made and continues to make images of students whom he has worked with in various colleges in England. His work with his mother has changed from a collaboration to one of a passive sitter after her diagnosis with dementia and subsequent move to a nursing home.
Finn will speak in conversation with Rodrigo Orrantia, an art historian and curator who specialises in photography and moving image.
