For our November 2017 Artist Supper we took a whirlwind tour through the art world labyrinth by way of a pub quiz, devised by BCA’s Curator Producer Annie Bacon. The quiz Featured topics such as artist bands; is it art? and art world wags and habs.
The Artists’ Suppers are part of our Contemporary Artists Bedfordshire programme. They aim to offer rich conversation paired with great food and the opportunity for local artists to meet, connect, share and get to know one another.
