Julia Crabtree and William Evans have been collaborating since 2006 and are known for their process-driven sculpture. Our exhibition, Slip, includes a diverse range of their recent work, from casting and glass-blowing to video-making and printing.
Join us for this series of free online events, as we look at some of the themes and ideas behind the exhibition. We will be speaking to artists, curators, writers and academics on topics such as the importance of touch, the relationship between bodies and ecosystems, and the necessity of experimentation and risk.

Julia Crabtree and William Evans Pl(a)y the Abstract Line
Live discussion on Wednesday 1 December
Julia Crabtree and William Evans' glass and ceramic works liberate line and shape to release unforeseen singularities. Their deep collaboration with materials, guided by a rigorous playfulness, liberate abstract lines - lines that don't describe a pre-existing idea but express the creativity of process. In this talk, Dr Laura U. Marks (Simon Fraser University) explores the inherent humour in the work of Julia Crabtree and William Evans.
