About the Event
In this event, writers Toby Ferris and Andre Bagoo discuss their work as confessional tales, elaborating on personal encounters with art, as a form of criticism. Ferris’s book, 'Short Life in a Strange World' charts a five-year project to witness the 42 surviving paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, while Bagoo writes poetry and essays on artistic subjects including Bruegel, Titian and 19th-century Trinidadian painter Michel-Jean Cazabon.
