Artist Talk: Maggie Thompson – Tuesday 28th January 2020, 6-7pm

As part of our series of artist talks to correspond with the exhibition programme at WYPW, we welcome Maggie Thompson for an informal discussion about her practice and most recent works shown here as part of her solo show.

Maggie Thompson has exhibited widely since completing her MA at Manchester School of Art in 2017and sites printmaking as being integral to her practice, specifically focusing on etching onto steel. Her talk will explore the inspirations behind her prints, her approach to making work and the importance of printmaking in her investigation of space be it transitory, liminal space like that found where the land meets the sea; heterotopic space such as that of a journey; or the virtual infinite space of the mind within the finite space of the body.
