How Did We Get Here? Part 3

Adam Sutherland MBE distils his 23 years as Grizedale Arts director into four unmissable chapters.

In this third episode of four, Adam Sutherland works with artist Laure Prouvost to release her 2013 Turner Prize winning Wantee installation, filmed at Lawson Park in a shed built by Coniston Youth Club and filled with ceramics made by Adam.

Grizedale’s revival of the Coniston Institute gains momentum with innovative takes on landscape exhibitions, specialist craft workshops and celebrations of vernacular crafts and folk art. However, it’s not all plain sailing with the village, when an architect-designed cricket pavilion is put on ice indefinitely.

An anticlimactic retrospective of Grizedale’s oeuvre held at Kendal’s Abbot Hall is a chance to take stock, and a hugely ambitious summer project at Dublin’s Irish Museum of Modern Art makes everyone involved thoroughly sick of courgettes.

About Our Autumn Talks Series:

The Farmer’s Arms is not your typical pub. Nor is Grizedale Arts your typical arts organisation. They’ve both come a long way, and this autumn we’ve tasked our longest-standing staff members to tell you all about how we got here.

Pick up a pint in The Stable Bar and settle down to hear some extraordinary and inspirational stories that connect art and life in ways that you’ve never dreamt of. Each session lasts an hour with ample time for questions at each talk’s end.

Venue: The Farmer’s Arms, Lowick Green, Nr Ulverston, LA12 8DT

Tickets: Free – but advance booking is essential
