Charmaine Lurch is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work draws attention to human-environmental relationalities. Lurch’s paintings and sculptures are conversations on infrastructures and the spaces and places we inhabit. Working with a range of materials and reimagining our surroundings—from bees and taxi cabs to The Tempest and quiet moments of joy, Lurch subtly connects Black life and movement globally. Join us for an evening talk where Lurch will share her experience as an artist and speak upon her new exhibition called,

To Be In This Place. Experience enchanting works by Lurch that play with light and shadow to take viewers on a journey across the sky, sea and land. These visual and tactile constructions form fluid typographies that examine human, animal and environmental relationships.
