Un-Monumental Kenny Hunter
Edinburgh Art Festival 2016
6 August 2016, 2 – 3.30pm
At Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop
Kenny Hunter will deliver a talk on how the monumental tradition has informed his work and how he has both subverted and reimagined its legacy in both gallery based and public art outcomes.
The audience are invited to visit his exhibition Reproductive! before the talk and to participate in a question and answer session at the end.
