19 October 2019, 2 – 2.30pm

Paul Kindersley is one of 22 artists selected for inclusion in ‘The Cambridge Show’ and is performing in the gallery every Saturday during the exhibition.

Paul Kindersley and a troupe of performers will perform Ship of Fools, a play written by Kindersley and inspired by a painting by Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516). Bosch’s Ship of Fools depicts a boatload of merrymakers indulging in earthly pleasures while unwittingly sailing towards their doom. The performance will last 30 minutes and will take place amongst Kindersley’s installation of handpainted drapery in the gallery.

FREE, come along.

Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition will explore these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.
