Olivia Laing

Funny Weather: Art in an Emergency

Friday 20th March 2020
8:30pm – 9:30pm

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £10.00
including a glass of wine


From profiles of Basquiat and Georgia O’Keefe to interviews with Hilary Mantel and Ali Smith and love letters to David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, this inspiring collection of essays is to dive into and savour.  Bringing together a career’s worth of writing on art and culture, Olivia Laing celebrates art as a force of resistance and repair in the midst of the turbulent political weather of the 21st century and argues its continued importance as an agent for change in the way we see the world.

‘A brave writer whose books open up fundamental questions about life and art’ Telegraph
