The lecture will give participants an opportunity to learn more about the artists on display and how such a remarkable exhibition came about.
Dr Gerardine Mulcahy-Parker, a prominent art historian and freelance curator, will give a talk about her recent exhibition, ‘Crossing borders from the Danube to the Humber: Alfred Gruber and Friends’, which looks into how she unearthed the story of Austrian-born Alfred Gruber and his European artistic circle during the 1960s and beyond.
In addition, the exhibit offers the chance to view original drawings, sculptural models, tools, and materials, and to discover more about what made this exceptional artist tick.
The event will be held on Saturday, 7 May at 13.30 – 2.30 p.m. in the Education Room on the first floor of the Treasure House. East Riding Museums have set a price of £5 per person, and those who wish to purchase tickets should do so in advance by visiting the website or by calling the customer service number (01482) 392699, which is open Monday to Friday.
