Having studied Art History at the Courtauld Institute and at Sussex University, Jeremy Deller began making artworks in the early 1990s, often showing them outside conventional galleries. In 1993, while his parents were on holiday, the artist secretly used the family home for an exhibition titled Open Bedroom. Since then, Deller has exhibited widely around the world and in 2013 was selected to represent Britain in the Venice Biennale.

A free return bus service for attendees will be provided from the Herbert Museum & Art Gallery to the Mead Gallery in time for the exhibition’s opening party at 6pm. The talk is free but places are limited so please book early by calling Box Office.
