In June 2016, film-maker Cary Parker spent twenty-one days in Kettle’s Yard, documenting the house, the gallery, the art, and the people at a moment when everything was about to disappear, while the site closed for major development. What was the secret of a place which seemed to move people so profoundly?

On 10 February 2018, the New Kettle’s Yard reopened, with exhibitions of work by contemporary artists including Anna Brownsted, Edmund de Waal, and Cornelia Parker, joining the familiar works by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ben Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Elisabeth Vellacott – among others – collected by Kettle’s Yard’s original owner, Jim Ede.

This film screening and discussion offers a view of the house as it was alongside a perspective on the house as it is now and might be in future, with the archivist at Kettle’s Yard, Dr Frieda Midgley, the artist Anna Brownsted, and the filmmaker, Cary Parker. The discussion is led by the art historian Dr Claudia Tobin, a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in English and Jesus College Postdoctoral Associate.

Tickets are free and available to book via Eventbrite
