Playing in a World is a role playing game led by artist Kitty Clark and critic Jamie Sutcliffe. Participants will explore and play in a scenario based on the imagined worlds that Clark’s artworks encompass. The players will become collaborators, working together for a session of experimental worldbuilding.
This event accompanies Jerwood Solo Presentations 2019, which showcases new works by Appau Jr Boakye-Yiadom, Kitty Clark and Sofia Mitsola. It is free to attend, booking is required via Eventbrite.
Light refreshments will be provided by Gentleman Baristas.
