Artist, Mike Nelson’s recent commission for Tate Britain 'The Asset Strippers' transformed the grand spaces of the Duveen Galleries into something between a sculpture court and a warehouse of salvaged machinery.

This event will examine in depth the many aspects of this ambitious and complex work, its relationship with the history of twentieth-century sculpture and with Britain’s industrial past.

Professor Caitlin DeSilvey’s research explores the cultural significance of material transformation, decay, repair and maintenance.

Free admission, all welcome. CAST Café food from 6pm, something hot and something sweet from £8. The conversation will begin at 7pm.

This event is presented at CAST with support from University of Exeter Arts & Culture.
